Rezzica di San Vito Dei Normanni
The Rezzica annual event is symbolic to San Vito Dei Normanni, with its colourful exhibitions, traditional ancient exorcisms of the tarantula which is expressed through music and dancing, and of course delcious street food. The whole event retains an old folk festival feel.
Rezzica also celebrates the heritage of the Rezza, the wooden slatted shutter which covers the front door to protect them from the sunlight, let air flow through the house and allows locals to spy on passers-by.
