Dear Friends,
it's a great pleasure from me to participate in this event. Let me thank the town of Cosenza in the person of Mr. Perugini, the Mayor of the town.

A special thanks goes to our friends of the Second District, we thank the President Giovanni Cipparrone and his staff for the opportunity to represent your city on several occasions.

We started with a relationship, now with great pride we can say that was a beautiful and sound friendship.

This trait d'union is confirmed by this event: -- Saturday, 08 December I & II The district participated in the Feast of Perciavutti (TV present: RAI TRE CALABRIA, TEN, TELEMORMANNO)

-- Sunday 09 December 2007, we witnessed the twinning between the circle of elderly people of JMormanno and Cosenza cities council. (TV present: RAI UNO, RAI TRE CALABRIA, TEN, TELEMORMANNO) The goal we aim at is to bring the two centres more and more nearer!

08/12/2007 - Perciavutti Feast in Mormanno (CS) Miromagnum Folk Group participates in ..

Around the middle of XIX century V. Padula wrote: "Mormanno, a lot of vineyards, mixed with chestnut woods and vegetables: they are apart or a quarter or a half……… .. Vines grow at the height of man, in order to avoid the rotting of grapes. The best grapes of all: nivurana, cannamele, mostarda, cascarola, castiglione, aulivella. Eatable: guagliona nera, lunguvarda, jditella coglione di gallu ". Some of these ancient vines still exists but wine production decreased greatly and now is for family use. Because the area where the wine is produced (Donna Bianca, Colle di Ferruzzo, Pietragrossa, Profitta) is based on high hills, the must ripes later than its custom, so the taste of NEW WINE occurs at the beginning of December, and according to the tradition of the day, precisely on 8 December.

The Association "Comunalia", with the intent to make clear outside this our ancient custom, organizes since seven years "Perciavutti" event. This year, in the heart of the four parts of the old town - Capo lo Serro, Casalicchio, Torretta e Costa - will be set up some typical "vuttari", that is to say the traditional ritual of barrels "perciatura". The wine will be poured and offered to our Guests that will be to enjoy food along with the oldest mormannese tradition and with music and happiness. Please don't miss this evening, we are waiting for you!

Program: December 8, 2007, at 19:00 - Opening of barrels by "vuttari".

Guests of the evening:

“Zampogne e ciaramella del Pollino”Con il maestro Pino Salomone
Popular Music Quartet “Tricc e Ballaci”
Folk Group
