Bailarinas en la a Feria de las Colectividades, Morón – Buenos Aires25 Jan 2016, by Relations in
The Feria de las Colectividades in the city of Morón in the Argentinian province of Buenos Aires is an occasion where local communities from Moron and the surrounding provinces of Catamarca, La Pampa, Tucumán, Santiago del Estero and Salta come together to enjoy typical local food and regional produce, traditional dances and music. It is an event supported by the local municipality and the Sociedad Italiana de Morón.
The young women rehearsing a dance with flags are wearing costumes typical of those associated with the tarantella dance, popular in the south of Italy. A sleeveless black bodice is laced with colourful ribbons and the blouse is always white. The silk or cotton skirts are full, coming to just below the knee and usually worn with petticoats. Favourite colours for tarantella dancing skirts are red, green, blue and black. The small apron is either sheer, to allow the colour of the skirt to show through, or made of lace. Shoes are always black.
