Manfredi was a knight and Rosalia "only" a country noblewoman. In the Middle Ages, they shared a passionate love that was hampered by their families.
Their romantic nights were spent in secret, whispering words of love from the balcony. On the night of a full moon, while looking out, Rosalia said: "See sir, if, when the moon seems to be resting on the Alp, one could touch her, she could ask for what she wants and would be answered. The old people tell us that there are immense treasures on the Alp. But no one has ever been able to touch the moon and take the treasures. Those who have gone have never returned because the Alp comes from the moon and she kills those who dare to approach "
Manfredi, fearless, decided to risk the danger and venture in search of the treasures of the "moon". Courageous Rosalia, decided to accompany him out of love, but nobody has ever seen them return.
A few centuries ago, coal merchants and foresters said that on full moon nights they heard the gallop of two horses and saw two nearby shadows with their hands stretched upwards, in a desperate attempt to touch the moon.
