Along with the piccola zappa ("zappetele"), the bidente is an agricultural tool that is used in Gambatesa. Of the two, the bidente is used for harder work; they both come up to a man's ribs in height.
The bidente is outside the doorway of a house at the corner of Largo della Madonna and Via Nazionale Appula.
