Our curriculum

Founded, as already told, at the end of the fifties, the Folk vocal group "SOT la NAPE" had started its activity with modest performances in the town  and in neighboring villages. Growing in quality and commitment, with the slow step of the mountain dweller, the group has repeatedly extended the range of its shows, on the occasion of meetings and conferences of provincial, regional and national level. It represented Friuli, in 1962, at the food and wine regions fair in Turin and , In the same year, won the first prize in the competition of Italian Folklore in Lucca. Since then, transfers, even prestigious, have followed a relentless pace, in occasion of Festivals and high-level conferences (National Touristic Press Conference, World Congress of Municipal and Local  Police, etc.). The first exit abroad occurred in 1964, in the Netherlands, on the occasion of the thousand-year of the Catholic University of Utrecht, with the group also performing in Enschede, Luxembourg, Basel.

As well as in major Italian cities, the group’s history sees the band in several European and also non-Europeancountries. It should be noted the second prize at the international competition of Mountain Folklore of Zakopane, in 1968.  Since 1960, every 10th August the group organizes in Villa Santina, an International Folklore festival which has seenthe participation of groups coming from across Europe, but also fromCanada, Algeria, Israel, Mexico and Russia. The group has  recordedmany albums, audiotapes, videotapes, and CDs and has attended radio and television broadcasts.
