The volcano magic

an oral tale of 1800

 

One day a man named Mauro  appeared on the mount Vesuvius, he had  a face as black as night and asked the magic of the volcano to be transformed into a normal man.

His prayer was answered. Suddenly an angel appeared who took him into the crater and blowing onto his face made his kin white like snow.

So the two craters were called Angelo and Mauro.

But not all the  volcano stories  end well: when a wicked monk  invoked Vesuvius asking for help to implement his bad design, the mountain was angry hunting from the crater a pillar of fire and sending down a magical horse with flame eyes  and a snake mane.

The animal chased the monk and  when he was  reached, the horse clapped with its socket on the ground  which opened swallowing the evil man.

Those places were then called “Horse  atrium” and ” Monk”.
