Have you ever heard an Italian
legend about a terrible dragon ?
It could be a suggestive character in a fairy story for children,
should not be a pleasure living with this ferocious beast just outside
the wall of your city.. Many and many years ago, a big dragon chose
these lands as its shelter, decision that local population didn’t
like at all.. A frightful threat run all around, and nobody had
the courage to fight against it. But often the imprudence of the
youth is the best arm to resolve in a victory these kind of battles,
so a young man, member of the noble family Cittadini, decided to
face danger when the dragon was sleeping.
The surprise attack was unsuccessful, but the destiny decided to
help this rash lonely warrior. The reflected sunlight on the metal
armour dazzled the dragon, then the young noble man could strike
the deadly blow on its body.
The memory of that triumphal event is still present in the
tradition of the local community, if today you look at the gonfalon
the city, you can see the dragon spitting fire from its mouth..
