The first publication of research results dating back to 1962, in a volume of “Lares Library”. Among the documents found there are important examples of expressive oral history of the area, such as stories and life stories (as yet unpublished), but also expressions of the work-related directories, and popular devotion, to the carnival plays, rhymes, songs for the ‘childhood, iterative songs and the narrative tradition. The book presents, finally, a broad historical-critical introduction, the transcript of the songs, selections, a rich photographic documents produced during the research and essays by Pietro Clemente and Enrico Grammaroli. And Clemente, in a passage of his speech, stressed the importance of the materials of which the volume is made: “These pages make us so vividly present life and the expressive world of the village of Penne in the province of Pescara in recent years’ 50, to get inside it to us today, which means that tomorrow we will have them in our experience focused on the future. That will be an enrichment of the possibilities of our imagination, of our ability to pass it. Which it is also another way of saying that history is always contemporary history. ”
