According to the item 3 of the statute, in its larger aim of solidarity and social and cultural promotion, the objectives for which the nCircolo" was established are: Besides, according to the item 4 the Cireolo carries out its work and initiatives not only in Scapoli's area but also out of it with the aim to favour the exchange and the cooperation between communities and territories. When some inhabitants of Scapoli decided to establish the cultural association "Circolo della Zampogna", the tradition of making and playing this ancient instrument was still deely-rooted in the local community, but they felt the need to preserve this heritage and to transfer it to the new generations.

For that, many and various activities have been carried out, involving not only the zampogna makers and players but the whole community. The main actions can be summarized in the following: Besides all the other good results in terms of preservation, promotion and revitalization, the project let the Circolo to take the first census of the cultural heritage connected with the zampogna, to collect materials and documents for the Italian centre of the Bagpipe, to realize a transnational cooperation project called "Common Sounds to the European Rural World" in cooperation with the Local Action Group "North Pennines" Northumber1ad, UK and above all to reinforce the link between the community and its heritage.

About the competence and the expertise in the domain of intangible cultural heritage, the personnel and the membership consist in: The "Circolo della Zampogna" was bom from the will of a consistent part of the local community "to do something" to safeguard, to promote and to transfer to the new generations the typical cultural heritage represented by the zampogna.

Since its foundation joined the Association several zampogna makers and players that, both as group and individuals, are those who traditionally create, maintain and transmit this kind of heritage. Besides, most of the activities have been carried out wit the involvement and the participation of the whole community, from its younger to the older members. At this regard, a very important and successful role has been played by the LEADER project "Living with the bagpipe" with which it has been possible to reinforce the relationship between people and their cultural heritage. Particularly significant is also the annuallntemational Bagpipe Festival in which.

The festival is organized in collaboration with the Commune and with the local turistic association. There are also involved all the economic and trade activities of the area, people give their help in the organization of the event, place rooms for visitors and musicians, sell gastronomic specialities, etc. In each edition of the Festival the musicians involved, traditional and not, come from all over Italy and each time from 2, 3 or more foreign countries.

It has in addition been active in the valorization of the traditional Iiutery for the construction of zampogne a chiave,and other local traditional musical instruments like surduline, ciaramelle, tamburelli, cupa-cupa, fischiett di canna etc. This activity is carried out in the respect of the ancient craftship but with an opening towards the young generations through old and new forms of artistical expressions and through initiatives and collaboration and exchanges with local bodies, cultural institutions, universities, associations, etc.

The association promotes, organizes and eventually manages courses on traditional instrument and vocal music, traditional dance, seminars, stages and what more to disseminate the knowledge and the practice of the local musical tradition among young and elder people. Moreover the association implements local historical research, safeguarding of the ethnic inheritage, re-discovery of instrument players and singers from the past through the publication of their original repertoires and documentation and a systematic data collection regarding the past and contemporary musical tradition.

All ordinary members have the right to express their vote. The General Assembly of members is the main decision organ. The Association was created with the aim of reviving the still deeply-rooted tradition of making and playing the zampogna a chiave and the other local traditional instruments within the community all along the year and with particular regard to the religious feasts. However, slowly the old bearers of tradition are disappearing and for such reason the members of the association together with community felt strongly the need to preserve this heritage and to transfer it to the new generations.

In this direction, various initiatives have been implemented in time among which: Members of the association have competence and expertise with regard to the intangible cultural heritage as they are mainly traditional zampogna makers and players, other traditional instruments makers and players, dancers, ethnomusicologists, anthropologists, musicians and scholars, besides being all members of the various communities present in the Pollino area, including Arbresh representatives.

The President of the Association Giuseppe Salamone is member of a family considered since more than years one of the principal families trasmitting the tradition of the zampogna including construction, playing and dissemination of the instrument and its music for further detailed information please refer to the ethnomusical studies done on the famiglia Salamone in the Pollino area.
