"I consider it one of the most important manifestations of popular culture in Europe and in our nation. In its being it blends different styles that find a perfect synthesis and that recall the spirit of the Mediterranean and therefore the fact of being a nation at the center of the Mediterranean basin, capable of attracting and mixing the different cultures that have succeeded each other over the centuries. I have always said that the richness of Italy is the plurality of its regions, each with its own peculiarities, museum, archaeological. This event will always find my support, I have always been involved in the Notte della Taranta even as a news director, because it is a community and identity event that brings people together and being together is something necessary." Thus Minister Sangiuliano today in a video message at the beginning of the press conference presenting the Melpignano Concert that will be held tomorrow, August 26.
