One of the most widespread customs in traditional sheep farming is the "Transumanza", an ancient pastoral practice of seasonal migration of livestock along the "tratturi" and towards better climatic conditions.
But transumanza is not just an agricultural practice, it is a journey back in time, an ancient ritual handed down from father to son in a millenary tradition that unites people with places and animals.
An ancient art that has been recognized as an "Intangible Heritage of Humanity" for its great historical and anthropological value.
And it is in respect of this ancient practice that the Coldiretti of Avellino, in synergy with the Municipality of Senerchia, has organized, on Sunday 16 July, the traditional event that will revive the show of Transumanza.
An extraordinary moment of aggregation and sharing, in the pristine greenery of Irpinia.
We will start from the hills of Teora until we reach the peaks of Senerchia, where there will be a first stop for the ancient rite of the "scampanamento", the changing of the bells, and then up, towards the second stop in Madonna delle Teglie, where the Coldiretti will give life to a sumptuous banquet to taste the extraordinary typical local products.
Community, aggregation and tradition, these are the elements that will make the day unique, in an atmosphere of great celebration and conviviality.
