  • Calabrisella Mia

    Calabrisella Mia Folk Dance Back in time, in the beautiful region of Calabria, in a pristine village where life is pure and simple, takes place a beautiful love story.

    A young man in love with a beautiful girl follows her to the nearby water fountain to declare his love for her. At the fountain the shy girl is using the fresh water to wash her clothes when he steals her best handkerchief. While he is walking around trying to win her heart he asks the beautiful girl for some fresh water to drink. At first she refuses to give him water. She then decided to give him some to drink, but only after he promises to visit her tonight at her home so he could meet her parents.

    The folk dance group "I Paesani", from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, performed this story at the local San Rocco festival in Pittsburgh. Members of the group all have ties to Spigno Saturnia, which is a town located in the province of Latina in the Lazio region of Italy.
