Fear of the Beast

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It is said that in 1647 a strange Beast was seen walking in the town.

It used to walk at night and restore in the cemetery.

The fear for the beast started spreading among the people and for about five years did not dare to go out as soon as the sun went down.

Evenually a group of young  led by the marquis Gianfrancesco Locatelli decided going out looking for the beast and,once found,they killed it sticks.

It appers like a mitological creature,a sort of great lizard with lion-shape arts.
