Story Behind The Name
‘Tarantismo’ literally, is the medical term for the ‘unconditional desire to dance!’ The story goes that in the 15th century, in a small town called Taranto, people were bitten by a venomous spider which caused them to break into frenzied dancing, the term ‘tarantismo’ was coined as a result.
