Geppo del Capplet

Enzo Conti was given this photo during his field research in the Langhe area of Piedmont, N Itlay, in the early Seventies.  It was given to him by a man who knew the player, Geppo del Capplet (a ninkname), when he was young.

The instrument Geppo is playing is a 'semitun' - a hybrid accordion, half diatonic (right hand) and half chromatic (left hand).
