PIZZICANTO plays traditional music from the South of Italy, involving dance-tunes and songs full of beauty, history and vibrant energy.
Their performances are a musical journey along the southern part of the Italian Peninsula.
This journey brings you to the Pizziche from de Puglia region, on to the Tarantelle from Calabria, the Moresche and Tammurriate from Campania, and at last the Serenate and Tarantelle from Sicily…..
