I Krampus

Ciao a tutti!
Oggi voglio parlarvi di un'antichissima tradizione pagana, nata più di 1000 anni fa, e legata al solstizio invernale. Essa è tuttora festeggiata principalmente in Carinzia, in Slovenia e in Italia nella mia regione: il Friuli Venezia Giulia. In Friuli, questa festa viene celebrata soprattutto a Tarvisio, un paese di montagna molto vicino al confine con la Slovenia.

La parola Krampus deriva dal tedesco kramp che significa artiglio: i Krampus sono infatti dei demoni mostruosi e animaleschi che, secondo la leggenda, sono i servitori di San Nicola, un santo dalla lunga barba bianca, protettore dei bambini e simbolo della vittoria del bene sul male.

Questa manifestazione inizia la sera del 5 dicembre, dopo che il sole tramonta dietro le montagne. Dall'oscurità emerge un carro trainato su cui si trova San Nicola, il quale distribuisce dolci ai bambini che si sono comportati bene. Subito dietro di lui c'è la sfilata dei Krampus, che rincorrono e puniscono i bambini che si sono comportati male: questa è un'occasione di divertimento soprattutto per i giovani, i quali si divertono a provocare i Krampus e a farsi rincorrere da loro. I Krampus infatti sono selvaggi, violenti e inferociti e in questa serata danno sfogo a quelle forze che durante tutto il resto dell'anno rimangono represse: rincorrono urlando i bambini e i ragazzi, ma anche gli adulti, spingendo e colpendo chiunque capiti lungo il loro cammino. La parata continua lungo tutta la via principale del paese e i Krampus tengono in mano delle torce, le quali creano un'ambientazione decisamente infernale.

Per dare l'idea dell'atmosfera che si crea durante questa sfilata, vi allego alcune foto e un breve video. Spero che questo articolo sia stato interessante, a presto! 🙂

Hello everybody! Do you need to get ready for a job interview or for an Italian language exam/certification? Are you planning a holiday to Italy and you need to learn the most important words and sentences to be able to communicate and interact? Do you need to learn Italian in order to boost your job career's prospects? Or maybe because you are going to relocate to Italy? I am here to help you! I create customized lessons based on your needs and interests. I will provide you with all the material you need and I will focus on the reading and listening comprehension with the beginners (so they can start to become acquainted with the Italian language) and on conversation and fluency with the intermediate/advanced ones. Grammatical elements will be introduced as you work on your reading, listening and speaking: in this way you will learn about the language structures more naturally. During the first lesson I will give you a placement test (in order to find out your language level) and we will set the goals of the course together. I would describe myself as a very patient and helpful tutor. I have many years of experience in giving one-to-one lessons to students of any age and I love my job! I hold a Master's degree in Italian Studies and the CEDILS certificate in teaching Italian to foreign students. In my life I've lived in the USA and in the UK and I am a C1 English speaker. I am looking forward to teach my language to people from all around the world! If you like my profile, book a trial lesson with me, I will be very happy to be your tutor! See you soon :)
