Just like in fairy tales!

Hi, my name is Pier Paolo and I’m a Territory Narrator for the Terre dei Savoia.

 

I live in Govone and I love to reveal the secrets of my village: I will tell you of the stories, legends, intrigues and secrets which animate it. The inspired Lucretius once said “there is nothing certain in a world where nothing is as it seems. The only certain thing is the existence of a dark force which renders everything uncertain”. Well, he probably knew the Roero area. He came to Govone. Because, believe me, everything under the sun has happened in these parts. It is incredible to discover what lies beneath the peaceful appearance of this graceful little hillside town.  And it is all down to the ‘masche’, in other words the witches, or sorceresses as we call them here, who for centuries and centuries infested the Rocks with their rituals and magic potions.

Frightened? Don’t worry, I’m here.

 

And, in addition to sorceresses, there are also fables.  A whole host of fables, and I know nearly all of them. At my house, for example, there are several little donkeys who want nothing more than to be stroked, petted and transformed into magnificent colts. Just like frogs. Just like in fairy tales.
