Italy by Raymond Flower 36 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Gives informative tips on the do's and don'ts of custom in Italy and provides interesting insights into the social and business attitudes of the Italian people. La terra in piazza: Folklore by the fireside: Folklore by the Fireside is a thorough and insightful study of this custom from the tales, riddles, lullabies, and folk prayers performed as the small children are put to bed to the courtship songs and dances later in the evening to the anti- veglia male gossip, card games, and protest songs originating in the tavern.
Alessandro Falassi skillfully correlates the veglia to the rites of passage and family values of an agrarian society. Although the impact of mass media and other factors has tended to weaken the tradition, even today Tuscan children are taught to behave and adolescents are guided along the conventional path to adulthood, courtship, and marriage through veglia folklore.
This is the first work to deal systematically with Tuscan folklore from a semiotic and structural viewpoint and to examine the veglia as a means of handing down traditional values. It is important not only for its careful, detailed description but also for its rigorous methodology and theoretical richness.
