The Story to live together

Maria Bellelli is the heir of Baron Bellelli and, upon reading the testament, she discovers an unexpected clause to be respected: the traditions of the community must be celebrated every year with a great feast in which the farmers will have to dance the famous “Tarantella Cilentana”. The organization is entrusted to Daniela and Angelo, two dance professionals and tradition experts, who immediately set out to search for farmers.
Do you want to help Daniela and Angelo carry out this challenging task? Come for rehearsals at the Bellelli Rural Company and, remember, do not forget to bring a colored handkerchief!
