Two ancient legends tinge the Brianza area with mystery, one narrating the deeds of a courageous indomitable warrior and in the odor of sanctity, intent, in a land in danger, to save a girl and defeat a dragon, the other recalling the story of a greedy who, struck by madness, goes desperately in search of a lost wayfarer. A warrior, a maiden, a dragon and a miser struck by madness. It’s all here, in these pages that take on the contours of two sparkling legends. ,An unmissable book for lovers of folk tales.
