PARK OF GRANCIA,
BRINDISI DI MONTAGNA, BASILICATA, ITALY
The PARK can be considered the heart of the identity of Basilicata giving
the fact, that the famous events concerning the history of the “BRIGANTI” happened in these lands.
During the Risorgimento, in the XIX century, while the unification of
Italy was happening under the conduction of Vittorio Emanuele II Savoia
King of the Kingdom of Sardinia, in the south of Italy some bandits fought
against his armies because they considered his kingdom a coercion, and
for these reasons they were punished with detention and even with
death.
Today the park is home to several artistic exhibitions and historical
re-enactments, such us the well-known “STORIA BANDITA” which is a
form of an open air theatre where the set is the natural shape of the territory while the plot concern the whole life of the leader of the bandits
whose name was Carmine Crocco.
Crocco is considered to be a sort of protector of Identità Lucana (Identity of Basilicata), in its history and culture.
It is possible to see here other kind of performances with bird of prey
such us eagles and hawks (linked to the Frederician tradition to hunt
with falcon) and other shows relating to the world of popular fantasy and
magical tales.
