4 generations, that is, it is “passed on through collective sensual engagement with elements of culture, for example, generations of familial support of a football team based in identification with locality.” 11 All instructors of Macumba and their students, participants to a Macumba class or an event, create a specific group of people, identifying themselves with the name of ‘Macumberi’. In these 13 years, Macumba has been witnessed by two generations. There are several cases in Italy and abroad of instructors who have involved their friends, colleagues, and their family members too, mainly their kids who have become instructors as well; instructors of the future inheriting their past experience. Once more, cultural history is not about portraying an exact time, but learning in details how that exact time was experienced by certain groups of people. This might be a good reason to consider Macumba Dance Fitness a regional subculture that developed in the local area of Rome and from the ‘Due Ponti Sporting Club’ where it was originally experimented (still a favorite location of many events), spread to other regions becoming a national subculture, finally transforming itself into a transnational subculture going abroad to foreign countries.
