folkloristic group "I Fieramosca" was formed in Barletta
at the end of the 1990s. It consists of about 70 elements,
including Flag Wavers, Musicians, Extras, Fire-eaters,
Stilt-walkers, Jugglers and Swordsmen.
"I Fieramosca" have participated in numerous historical
processions from the 1500s, processions in honour of
Frederick, festivals, and patronal competitions and festivals. They
have also taken part in local and national television programmes.
With spectacular entertainment and the beauty of costumes from
the 1500s, accompanied by the roll of the drums and the blast
of the trumpets, "I Fieramosca" contribute to the creation
of a climate of jubilee and festival every time they appear, underlining
the ancient military origins of the event.
