At the end of the making, we will learn the technique to play the instrument and it will possible to play a “communal concert” of Marche folk music with the participation of some local musicians.

About Us

My name is Marco, Since childhood he was fond of traditions and dialect poetry. This passion was given by his grandfather, a “peasant poet” of the village, and his grandmother, a real encyclopaedia of folk songs. Due to the presence of the grandparents, throughout manuscripts and record tapes, he started to collect from different sources several traditional folk songs from Macerata. His love for the folk song increased day by day therefore he started to collaborate with several local folk music bands in order to increase his musical knowledges: Li Pistacoppi (Macerata), Li Matti de Montecò (Montecosaro), Pitiòmmia (Petriolo)…
Marco is still sing and play currently; always in search of lyrics, tales and songs from who still keeps traditions and history of its land, trying to spread with his voice the uniqueness of its land.
