VIESTE, UNDERWATER LOVE

Posted By : lecomari/ 1115 1

UNDERWATER LOVE
The symbol of Vieste is a huge 25m high stack on the beach. It’s a piece of sedimentary rock that was eroded throughout the centuries taking this shape. This is what scientists say.

The story told by local people is a little bit different. They call it Pizzomunno and they say it’s the name of a young man who was in love with a beautiful girl, Cristalda.

This feeling was so strong that the mermaids living in the Adriatic Sea were not able to seduce him with their beauty and their voice, because he didn’t want to cheat on his girlfriend. What did those fish-tailed chicks did as a revenge?

They waited for the couple to have some chilling time on the beach and then they suddenly came out of the water, kidnapped the girl and let her disappear in the bottom of the sea. Pizzomunno didn’t manage to save her, therefore he burst out crying out of desperation and was transformed into a rock.

According to the legend, they are allowed to meet each other once every hundred years.

Last year this story has achieved some popularity in Italy thanks to Max Gazzè, who sang a song about it at the most important music festival of the country, Sanremo’s Festival.

 

OUR UNESCO HERITAGE SITES: CASTEL DEL MONTE

CASTEL DEL MONTE: OUR UNESCO HERITAGE SITES. Why is it so different from the other medieval castles?

OUR UNESCO HERITAGE SITES: CASTEL DEL MONTE
It was 1996 when the Unesco committee decided to register for the first time among its World Heritage Sites two monuments of Apulia. One of these was Castel del Monte.

The octagon-shaped building, erected by Frederick II’s will, the only enlightened sovereign we’ve had in Southern Italy (so far… you never know) has been a puzzle since scholars have started showing interest in it: why was it built?

Why is it so different from the other medieval castles you can see in the area? Was it meant to protect or just to scream aloud „THE EMPEROR IS WATCHING YOU, EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE“? .

Some experts say it was just a defensive castle or „castrum“ in Latin, some other people state it was build in order to hide the Holy Grail, some others believe it was the Emperor’s sauna, you can also hear people saying it was a private university or a hunting residence.

Where is the truth? You can learn more if you book a flight to Bari and you dial our number.

UNESCO HERITAGE SITES: MONTE SANT’ANGELO

UNESCO HERITAGE SITES IN PUGLIA: MONTE SANT’ANGELO – VERY SUGGESTIVE

OUR UNESCO HERITAGE SITES: MONTE S. ANGELO
In 2011, 15 years after the inclusion of Castel del Monte and Alberobello in Unesco’s list, the committe creates a new category named “Longobards in Italy: Places of Power“, a group of seven World Heritage sites connected to the influence this Germanic people, also called „Lombards“, had in our peninsula.

One of these places is in Apulia: we’re talking about St. Michael’s Sanctuary in Monte Sant’Angelo, in the area of Gargano: National Park of Gargano, the green lung of Puglia

Why is this temple so important? Because, they say, the Archangel appeared four times (three during the 5th century, one during the 17th), kicked the pagan oracle of Chalcas out of that grotto, pushed his small foot so hard into the rock that he left its shape and then

he said something in Latin that sounded like “Where rocks are open, human sins are forgiven“ and he also added „you don’t need to consecrate this place, I did it myself“.

Still today, thousands of people every year go there for pilgrimage and say their prayers to that winged soldier sent by God to save us from Lucifer’s temptations.

Very suggestive!
