Il corredo

The c’nsegn was a ritual for families who married their daughter. The c’nsegn consisted of the display, in a room of the house, of all the items that the bride brought with her and that the bride’s mother had started to buy since the early years of her daughter’s life. The whole neighborhood went to see it, while the mother of the bride proudly showed it: “pann’a 10, pann’a 20 ..” (number of panels: towels, sheets …) “tutt accattat” (all bought) by Martinelli , a linen shop in Barivecchia: the beauty of the embroidery, the quality of the fabrics, the luxury … the shop that made the history of Bari old and sold the top of the linen kit!
