The latter, fond of music and popular traditions, left to us a wide singing heritage. The typical costume of the folk maid is characterized by a long curled skirt, an apron decorated on the borders, a corset tied on its back, a white blouse with large sleeves, up to the elbow, and a coloured scarf.
