🇬🇧 In this episode I will bring you around Brugnello, a medieval village overhanging the Trebbia river. As soon as you arrive here you will have the feeling that time stopped as all the houses have been built in stone and some of them even on rock.I will tell you the history of this place and we will meet I Müsetta, a folk group of musicians from Piacenza. We will listen to them performing and our guide Sara Dellacasagrande will interview them for us. Thanks to this nice opportunity we will learn a lot about the traditional music of the land.We will also discover some DOP specialities, so you will see some local food that you can't miss once you will come here!🇮🇹 In questo episodio vi porterò ad esplorare Brugnello, un villaggio medievale affacciato sul fiume Trebbia.Non appena si arriva qui, si ha l'impressione che il tempo si sia fermato perché tutte le case sono costruite in pietra, alcune direttamente sulla roccia.Vi racconterò la storia di questo luogo ed incontreremo I Müsetta, un gruppo di musicisti folk piacentini. Ascolteremo la loro musica e la nostra guida Sara Dellacasagrande li intervisterà per noi. Grazie a questa bella opportunità avremo modo di imparare molto sulla musica tradizionale di questa terra.Scopriremo anche alcune specialità DOP, così avrete modo di vedere del cibo tradizionale che non potrete assolutamente perdervi quando verrete qui! ...
