Pantalera in historical costumes

The Pantalera (from the Piedmontese pantalera, or “canopy”) is a variation of the fistball game, a traditional sport popular in all the villages of the Langhe and Roero area.

Every year, the Pantalera in historical costumes celebrates this challenge with two teams competing on a very special playing field, the central Piazza Risorgimento in Alba, in the shade of the Duomo. A moment in which tradition lives in its most authentic and purest form.
