Veneto regional songs
Venetian folk songs are mainly choral. The peasants used to sing during and after work in the mountains and forests, during the grapes harvest to avoid eating, in the kilns to create a coordination and make work more bearable.
Then in the times of relaxation, in taverns, after a wedding or festival, songs were of a more uninhibited kind, as a liberating rite. Musical instruments were both "professional" as the mandolin, fiddle, guitar, the Venetian-style "thimpano" (harpsichord), others were typical of the folk tradition, as the "piva", a kind of flute made from the bark of chestnut.
