IL LISCIO
The extraordinary success of this music genre was due to the fact that it was meant to be danced in pairs, which was rare at the time. Liscio is still alive after seventy years of changing music trends and this is the proof that its connection with this land is very deep. Liscio orchestras still perform their concerts in dance-halls in rural villages or in town feasts, where you can see people dancing along.
