The Toupins, the identity symbol for Morgins

  • French

The Toupin, which is the traditional iron cowbell has become the Morgins identity symbol. It represents its links to its Celtic history. The Toupins are associated with the village life as a sign of partying and gathering together.

In the alpine zone (the name Alps comes from the Celtic word “alp”,meaning mountain or summit) the Celtic economy was based on cattle breeding, which grew in importance with the development of cheese-making, already exported during Roman times.

The ski resort of Morgins has therefore found a symbol representing its bond to the past with the traditional big cowbell called “toupin”. Not the bronze cowbell which shows more recent prosperity, but the original iron cowbell, widely used in Celtic Europe and forged by the local blacksmiths.
