Dance Information

This dance, La Famiglia Graziani, was devised by Murrough Landon to honour the Graziani Family.

The Graziani Family are 4 dancers from Bologna who found themselves isolated together during the coronavirus epidemic and to relieve the boredom, performed one Scottish country dance in their living room every day, and posted it up on YouTube.

Bologna is the capital and largest city of the Emilia-Romagna region in Northern Italy.

It is the seventh most populous city in Italy with about 390,000 inhabitants and 150 different nationalities. Its metropolitan area is home to more than 1,000,000 people.
