"The Ciociari of Fumone"

The folk group The Ciociari of Fumone was founded in 1980 by some friends who loved dancing and folk traditions such as the stornelli and the salterello that from ancient times have set the rhythm of peasant life.

It consists of about 20 players and holds performances both in the square and in the theatre.

The band always performs wearing the traditional costumes and using the instruments of the tradition: piano accordian, cutufu or ciaramella and tambourine.
