La Ciociaria

le ciocie

Ciociary is a wide geographical region of South Latium that extends for about 3.400 sq km and largely covers the present area of the province of Frosinone. The name Ciociaria derives from ciocie, a pair of shoes once used by shepherds and farmers in the area, they are made of a piece of treated leather, of rectangular shape and a piece of cloth, adapted to the foot through a system of attachment that made the shoes perfectly tight to feet. Today these shoes are fit during folkloric events; in particular on Christmas period, they are fit by pipers who, running through the town's streets, spread all around, the melodious sound of their instruments: the bagpipes.
