This is the story of Maria la porta alba red dead killed by the ignorance of the people

The story tells of a woman named “Maria la Rossa” (because of the color of her hair) she was in love with Michael, who lived outside the city walls. When they opened Port’Alba, they were very happy because “mo putevane vederse all ‘ and juone and makes the love.”

However, whenever I tried to go past the door, a supernatural force prevented him from passing: there was no explanation, it must have been a curse. Young people, after several attempts, surrendered and Maria started to eat more “and so dry bones ‘ cacciaje facette fora, niro under the ca ‘ addeventaje, so ugly to people uocchie believed ca was na witch” … and so it was decided to hang the woman in a cage just below the arc Port’Alba, leaving it die of hunger and thirst.
“‘ the spirit of Mary, however, remained the”, and so many people, when the night is “black”, with no Moon, have seen wandering the restless Ghost in search of her lover.

The origin of the myth of #Streghe is very ancient: just think that already in #Bibbia is told the story of “Witch of Endor”, the necromancer addressed by King Saul to consult the Prophet Samuel, now dead.

Further back in time, traces of magic and esoteric arts can be found in the code of Hamurabi: indeed, at the Egyptians the work of sorcerers is evoked not only for magic spells and curses … .. .but also to cure physical illnesses and the spirit and to ease the path of the dead in the afterlife
