It must be said that in these areas those who come from far away, the Forèsti, are notoriously not welcome, and are always observed with suspicion. But the eccentric young man actually had aroundhim a certain aura of mystery for the solitude he lived in a house outside the village, probably belonging to his family, by a small church.
Suddenly, the young man fell ill with his mysterious torment and died. No one came to mourn him.
The house, over time, remained uninhabited even if not completely in a state of abandonment, because its location was perfect to allow wayfarers in this land of passage to stay there for a while during their journey. By daylight it looked welcoming and perfectly suited to that use.
But after midnight the harrowing sound of a violin terrified the guests of those bewitched building and of those who were around there, and even the violin itself was told to roam in the air.
Even today, the sound of the violin is heard in the night after midnight in the woods surrounding the town, as told by the few inhabitants of Scogna and those who cross the valley in the night.
