The ancient activity of the "Wheel"
Ropes and hemps braiding of the village of Santa Lucia in Cava de' Tirreni, have armed sailing ships from all over the world. Wherever there is space to stretch rope, in every courtyard, gardens and along the rows of vines, pushed by a woman or a child, the wheel turns to twist the hemp thread that a man will tend. Then from the braiding of various threads the rope is born, which finally a special metal instrument assaults and finishes. The whole country brainds. And also if it's a humble job, for a thousand years it supports and develops St. Lucia.

Ancient methodsThe processing, done with ancient and traditional tools and methods, begins with the unravel of thicker and multi-stranded strings.
Open-air laboratoryThe thinner braids are tensed to poles, along the open-air laboratory. Note how the processing takes place under a grape pergola.
The very youngIn this phase also the artisans' young sons contribute, with minimum results to tend the cordage. A didactic form of apprenticeship.
RoughingGoing back and forth along the path, stretched strings are cleaned. The work of roughing is also responsability of men, but even if there is no genre discrimination, the most accurate roughing is done by the work of women.
