The Zampognaro Lagaro Association was founded by our President, Attilio Gasperotti, as the natural evolution of his personal paths in the world of folk music and dance. The association is composed by experienced folk musicians, dancers, folk dance teachers and young people who trained both as musicians and dancers. That’s the origin of this unitary project focused on the culture of folk dances in the Province of Trento. The project began to take form in 2007, during a trip to Hungary, on the Balaton Lake. The experience was repeated in the following international events in Banja Luka, USA, Portugal, Hungary, Islands, Sicily, Indonesia, Russia, Brazil, Peru, Spain, France and many more,
President of organizations received an award at the Vatican: that’s the Giuseppe Sciacca Award for the promotion and dissemination of popular traditions. We also want to stress the fact that most of the artists are both musicians and dancers, and in some cases are even able to exchange their roles. The Association aims at studying music and dances of the Province of Trento, at rediscovering their main values and at valorizing them through a new point of view.
