Santa Allegrezza


The "Santa Allegrezza" is the traditional Molfettan Christmas song. A series of events has been planned around the song this weekend. Last night an illustrated book of the song's lyrics was presented at city hall, followed by an exhibit of the original paintings, by local artist Vittoria Facchini, in the old town.

This video is of terrible quality, but at least you can hear the song...
