CLAN "Z" MACAJVAR
Clan "Z" MacAjvar founds its now strong and lasting roots in the mists of time ... It was 1997 when Wolf flashed the idea of reuniting in some way the closest friends he considered to be an extended family, in a “transversal” group in which everyone could recognize themselves. This could not be just any clan, it had to stand out, so by assonance they decided to adopt the word Clanz which in the Trieste dialect indicates a country road. Finally the name: MacAjvar! (For the uninitiated, Ajvar is a typical sauce of the karst areas that is used on boiled and grilled meats).
The cultural association AES TORKOI of Trieste was born from a group of people with a common passion for history, experimental archeology and historical re-enactment.
After careful research on the uses, customs and tools of the Gallic populations of the Trieste Karst, Friuli and nearby Istria of the III-II century BC, they handcrafted jewelry, accessories, war tools and objects of common use, also initiating experiments of a sartorial nature , artisanal, gastronomic as well as fencing activities thus evoking the ancient Gallic population of the Carni.
The Tre Draghi Cultural Association is a group of friends dedicated to studying and self-producing objects, clothing and weapons typical of Celtic populations who lived between the 4th and 2nd centuries BC in a totally artisanal way, reconstructing their activities through the setting up of historical camps during festivals and re-enactments. In particular, the goal is to re-propose the life of a supra-tribal organization of continental European warriors linked to the mercenary service and therefore usually forced to expeditions and movements that lead them at a certain time to settle temporarily in the geographical region of the Eastern Alpine Arc. and the Caput Adriae (territories currently divided between Italy, Austria and Slovenia), areas inhabited at the time by various populations including the Celtic ones of the Carni, the Taurisci, the Catubrini and the Norici. In this sense, the symbol chosen for the banner of the Clan is of great importance, defined by archaeologists as "Pair of Dragons", which is often traced back to populations of this kind.
The clan was born from the passion of Annamaria and Flavio for Celtic culture and historical re-enactment, especially with regard to traditional music and dances of which they become so expert that they can be taught with joy and professionalism, transmitting the fun and joy of Breton and Scottish dances. and Irish. They have been an integral part of the festival for many years now, conducting stages in which dozens of people participate, from absolute beginners to expert dancers.
CLAN DEL TORO
The Clan del Toro is a cultural association that deals with the safeguarding of Celtic traditions in the places of origin, with particular emphasis on the Celtic traditions of the Veneto. The intent of the founding members is to seek the connection between the various European Celtic cultures through the study of the history, traditions, legends, habits and customs of the Celtic peoples and to research how much of all this has been handed down to the days ours, to the point that it is still present in our daily life. The choice of Taurus as a symbol of association is for what Taurus represents in Celtic culture. In fact, the "Tarvus" is a powerful animal symbol of prosperity, fertility, wealth, deeply linked to the land of origin but at the same time connected to the sky through the elegant sickle-shaped horns stretched out almost in obedience to the divinities.
CLAN LOUGH GUR
The Clan Lough Gur was born with the aim of living and making known the culture and spirituality of Ancient pre-Celtic Europe and the early Celtic period which was based on the awareness of the divine Essence that pervaded the entire cosmos and which, in fact generating life was seen as a Mother, a Goddess, not in the sense of a female god but in the sense of the Generating Principle from which the life-death and rebirth cycle originates, a feeling present not only in Europe but in all ancient cultures of the world. The name takes its name from the Irish archaeological site of Lough Gur, a place inhabited from the Neolithic to the late medieval period, in which both megalithic circles and Celtic remains are found. The totem animal of the Clan is the Otter, which represents the primal feminine energy of Life, and its elements are earth and water. Clan leader is Denise Cannas, a European pagan shaman, who bears the testimony of the ancient European pre-Christian spirituality throughout Europe, also as leader and frontwoman of the Uttern group, but there is also the figure of the Druid, as she wants to represent the meeting between the pre-Celtic megalithic culture and the spirituality of the Celtic culture and the integration in the latter of the cult of the Goddess.
Clan Trumusio was officially born on June 12, 2021, from a group of old friends, all with the same interest in the history, customs and traditions of the Celtic world. Katia, the creator of the Clan, together with the members organizes a Celtic event in Calalzo di Cadore near the Lagole lake, born to pay homage to the divinity that was celebrated by the Celtic people right at the lake or rather, that lake (delle Tose), which shortly thereafter it would become a connection point for those friends, "TRUMUSIATE". With respect and devotion, that Latin name that has in its root the number 3 -tr- and also the unit -mus- which describes the connection with the humidity and with the water of that area in question indicated as the triforme, the triple, Katia adapts it to TRUMUSIO. The motto of the Clan is: "Nothing happens by chance", their beneficial and symbolic plant is "the hawthorn" and as a totemic animal, they chose "the fox", the animal that accompanied them to Lake Lagole for the first time. The clan offers many activities: from manual workshops to musical ones, to Irish dance workshops up to creative workshops for children, divination with runes and the most famous Celtic rite unions celebrated by Katia "Bridge".
