The costume Sorso

 268951_432958440133445_1565237649_n The recent history of costume Sorso is quite curious and finds its origin almost by accident at the end of 2001, when the CCRS SORSO , while preparing an exhibition of postcards and photographs enlarged in the country , starting from a collection of Honorary President Mr. Petronio Pani , found themselves in some postcards of women in costume Sorso . From this discovery started a year-long investigation that has landed in December 2002 to a predominantly photographic exhibition on the last costume Sorso .

The exhibition was the first starting point and allowed to recover the original apparel jealously guarded , which were taken as a starting point for the creation of new , awakening the desire to sorsesi in folklore and traditions , giving rise to ‘ < b> folkloric Association SORSO .

The group has not only allowed us to rediscover the costume but also to traditional Sardinian dancing , usually accompanied by diatonic accordion , guitar and voice. Great peculiarity is the rediscovery of the drum Sardinian mainly used during processions and parades, but also to accompany traditional dances through rhythm called ” baddu sardhu “. < BR >

Here is a description of the various models that have been reported ” alive ”

Completing the costume lu panneddu , apron of black silk with floral designs purple, green and blacks , and lu muncaroru of cabbu , shawl of black silk with floral designs in soft fuchsia and fringed at nodes called ” honeycomb ” . Great attention should be given to the necklace in gold filigree , made up of various elements called father nostrhi . This feminine jewel was composed of an average of 24 or 26 elements held together by a silk cord that ran through them or a piece of filigree chain . Each element is composed of two hemispheres welded between them , slightly crushed and with two cylinders applied to the poles . There are few necklaces that today you can find intact while , on the contrary , many families are in possession of some nostrhi father because of the custom of the heirs to divide between them these jewels so dear to mothers and grandmothers . These elements have been transformed into beautiful earrings or sometimes in as many pleasant pins.
