    The Feast of San Domenico and the Ritual of Serpari of Cocullo
    One of the most popular traditional feasts of Abruzzo, well-known also abroad, is undoubtedly the Feast of San Domenico in Cocullo, a small mountain village in the province of L'Aquila. You may ask yourself how a feast in a small village can be so well known outside of Italy. The reason for this is that the statue of San Domenico is covered with real snakes caught by locals called "serpari" (snake charmers).
