“CRIST’, CHIAM’M’!”

Posted By : lecomari/ 70 0

“CRIST’, CHIAM’M’!”

In this video We explain when we use “CRIST’, CHIAM’M’!” 

In our region we often turn to the saints not only to pray, but also in less appropriate situations…! This is a typical dialectal expression of our region, Puglia.

So Apulian religion related dialect.

Why does Italy have more churches than people?
Because when you visit the historical centres, the villages, the monuments, you stop in a square to eat an ice-cream, you turn around and you are in front of or inside a church.
But for everything else, you find the people and things we are all used to

Now let’s take an example that could happen during one of our guide services
Imagine if during a guided tour, inside a large ancient church, everyone is silent, with earphones listening to the guide, seriously busy explaining the marble inlay of one of the altars, suddenly one of the backpacks falls on the floor on the feet of one of the participants of the visit causing also noise: we would say “Crist’ Chiam’m’!” for the embarrassment and especially for the desire to run away from that situation.

If you want to enjoy a direct experience of this emotion, call us and tell us on the phone: “Hello, We’d like to book a guided tour for tomorrow!
Are you the “CRIST’ CHIAM’M” Team?
Oh Jesus, of course we are!”
