The August 7 will take place at Villa Fidelia in Spello (PG) The Night of Saltarello, an event organized by the association Mantice. It will be an opportunity to get in touch with a music scene known but not recognizable as other repertoires related to folk dance. It will be also an opportunity to meet many good musicians, not only Umbrian, but also from Marche, Lazio and Campania. It starts at 15.00 with a laboratory on saltarello amatriciano by Alessandro Calabrese, during which will be presented the basic steps of the dance and body postures required for its proper execution (“step by invitation”, “basic step”, “spuntapiè”,”shot”). Simultaneously to the laboratory on the saltarello is provided on the tambourine amatriciano, by Franco Moriconi. As can be read in the program, the time is performed in 6/8, the hand remains rigid and arched and, by rotation of the wrist, alternate the two parts (thumb and other four fingers) which are in contact with the skin of the drum. In the evening, starting at 21.30, will host the festival with folk dances and songs of Umbria, Lazio and Marche. The musicians will be on stage and invite the audience to dance.
