Coppa di Campobasso

In Campobasso the head of the pig, cut off from the body was hung in a hook and garnished with an orange in its mouth, two chillies in its nostrils and a laurel branch in each ear. This tradition is almost no existent today, but we can find it in some popular sayings “vulesse vere la capa to’ appesa a la chianca ru Muccechille cu temone ‘mmocca”.
