As the legend goes, there was only one way to survive the bite of a tarantula and the workers in the fields of Apulia discovered it. When the spider bit you and the venom started to move within your body, you had to move with it and the only way to flush out the poison was to dance. During the performance, a tasting of fine wines and delicacies celebrating the Italian region of Puglia will be offered thanks to the generous support of Regione Puglia.

But what is the Taranta and what exactly are its origins? Tarantism is the act of exorcising and healing people from the painful tarantula bite. It was widely believed that the frenetic rhythm of the tambourine and the violin could make the pain dissipate. Even though it is usually danced in pairs, it was not and is not, a courtship dance. In fact, couples can be formed in many ways, even by two women or a grandfather and a granddaughter. A land with historical stratifications, cultural traditions, artistic and intangible heritage that is a resource to be protected through knowledge, awareness and enhancement. The grand finale takes place in Melpignano on August 25th.
