As the legend goes, there was only one way to survive the bite of a tarantula and the workers in the fields of Apulia discovered it. When the spider bit you and the venom started to move within your body, you had to move with it and the only way to flush out the poison was to dance. During the performance, a tasting of fine wines and delicacies celebrating the Italian region of Puglia will be offered thanks to the generous support of Regione Puglia.
