In Braccagni (Grosseto, Tuscany, Italy) each year on the 1st of May takes place the celebration of the May-singers, a ritual that back to the old May Day festivities. In a characteristical spot of the Maremma, groups of May and ballad singers as well as poets of ottava rima, coming from all parts of Tuscany, get together for a medley of begging songs, improvised verses and classical songs of old rural tradition.
