For the last twenty years "La Zampogna" has been one of the most important Italian festival of folk music.
The market of folk musical instruments, such as bagpipes, flutes, reeds, tambourines, etc, has been particularly succesful with young and old luthiers coming from various Italian regions.
In the twentieth edition of the festival they had a number of widely acclaimed guests. One was certainly Nadishana, coming from Siberia and certainly the most well known maker of instruments for European World Music. Among the young musicians who joined the festival they want to mention "Zampognorchestra", the original ensemble of late medieval bombards Lapsus Calami, and the great Enzo Avitabile, who was awarded "La Zampogna" prize. Concerts, seminars and workshops were run by many musicians who came to the festival from every part of Italy.
