The art of walking on stilts originates from the ancient necessity to move in swampy areas. In the medieval village of Schieti, farmers and miners were forced to wade the river Foglia on long poles of willow, a straight, light and resistant type of wood. Over the course of centuries, the tradition transformed into a ludic moment and today the five quarters of the town challenge one another during the Palio dei Trampoli (race on stilts), on the third weekend of June. Centro Socio Culturale Don Italo Mancini is Tocatì’s guest, with its 70 stilters between 5 and 80 years old.
