breaking the pignatta

the breaking of the pignatta is celebrated in Bisaccia. Families gather to dine and spend together a joyful evening, during which you can dance and proceed to the breaking of the “pot”, a pignatta filled with candy, chocolates, money and more, which is laid out with a rope to a ceiling hook. At dinner ended the game starts: the first contestant is carefully blindfolded and whirl several times on itself, so you lose all sense of direction, at this point, begins to deliver blows with a stick to hit the target and if not he succeeds in, gives way to another and so on. When finally the pignatta is hit it pours on the floor of the room and all its contents divide the spoils.
