The group "Agilla e Trasimeno" was formed in 1957, in order to revive some forms of rural and popular culture in Umbria, with particular regard to the zone of the lake Trasimeno. The group is composed by some young people, all from Castiglione del Lago, moved by a passion for the traditions of their land. The simple costume is that of the people of the lake between the XIXth century and the XXth century: the women wear a large headsquare on their shoulders and a very large apron; the men wear a waist-coat, a scarf round the waist, and trousers tied at their calves.
