Cianzùn de Cèlle de Sant Vite / Canzone a Celle di San Vito

Performed in Celle di San Vito, the neighboring village to Faeto, this song is in Faetar, a dialect of the Francoprovencal language. This ancient language has been spoken for over 700 years in Faeto and Celle and has been preserved because of the remoteness of these two beautiful little villages. The song speaks of the love they have for their history and culture. Yours truly was in both villages this past May and hearing the language brought me back to my grandparents' and great-grandparents' kitchens where the language was spoken fluently. This song has such heart!

Mille Grazie!!
