Where is the rooster? I have been looking for it for years all over the country, full of colours and unusual customs.

It takes many forms: sometimes it is a wooden toy, sometimes it is a baked cake or a metal weather vane. It decorates dresses, helps in musical expression, and sometimes becomes a prop for a village theatre that has been performed for centuries and whose actors were our ancestors.

If you don’t want to lose connection with your roots and you believe that cultural heritage enriches us – look for a rooster.
