La Notte della Taranta Festival (Taranta Night Festival) is one of the most popular summer events in Italy. It is dedicated to the Pizzica, a popular Italian folk dance that originated in the Salentine peninsula in Apulia. The traditions of this dance are centuries old, but the festival only started in the late ‘90s and consists of a entire night in which many famous musicians alternate their performances with orchestras while people dance to this obsessive, hounding sound.
What does Taranta mean? The dance’s name comes from the tarantula spider. According to the popular belief, Tarantismo is considered an hysterical phenomenon caused by the spiders’ bite with convulsions and a confused physiological condition; the dance was also meant to get rid of part of the spider’s poison.
