Tutte le attività svolte al Festival, tra narrazione, laboratori, spettacoli e mostre, mirano a presentare la storia, la musica e i balli della Tarantella e della Pizzica come fonte di conoscenza, valori e identità, un ponte generazionale ed elemento di connessione tra antiche culture come quella greca e quella italiana.

Durante il Festival verranno eseguite tre tipi di attività artistiche:
