New Year's Dirge
Among the popular traditions, the most lively for its originality is the New Year’s Lullaby whose text has been handed down orally from ancient times.
As soon as the new year has entered, a group of young people play and sing the dirge at the homes of some families, formulating wishes, invoking the blessing of heaven and praising the beauty of the hosts and concluding with the execution of a waltz, consisting of local “miscisti”.
