Fairies in Castelluccio: legend of Strada delle Fate (Fairy Road) of Mount Vettore

Women of rare beauty loved going to parties and dances in Castelluccio, but could remain among men only during the night. At dawn they had to return to their territory. There is a tale of them being surprised by the sun and forced to flee during a dance at dawn.

In their crazy rush, their goat-like feet marked the wall of Mount Vettore permanently, creating what today is still called “Strada delle Fate” (= Fairy Road) – a fault cutting across Mount Vettore at a height of about 2,000 m.
