LEGGENDA DI SANTA CRESCENZA

 
S. Crescenza Popular belief
It is popular belief that San Vito had tried in vain to convert the inhabitants of the village Conturrana, who were punished by God for not having listened to his preaching, with an avalanche which buried the village: it is said that the village is buried under an enormous mass of stones in Valanga district. The aedicule of Santa Crescenzia, however, is to remember where the avalanche ended, saving San Vito, Modesto and the same Saint, who ignored Godís order to not turn around so as not to see the punishment, and turned to stone from the shock: according to an ancient popular belief, to get over u scantu (fear), you should throw a stone into the aedicule.
