LEGENDS, MYSTERIES, CURIOSITIES TOLD BY LOVERS OF THE LOCAL CULTURE
The maze of alleys in the centre hides secrets and fascinating and surprising stories... that you will discover on this original tour! For  example, did you know that Ugo Foscolo, to whom one of the most characteristic caruggi is dedicated, passed through Pietra Ligure and set one of the 'Last letters of Jacopo Ortis' here? Walking along via Rocca Crovara have you ever felt as if someone was following you with their eyes? It's the mystery that hovers over the fresco called 'du Segnù' (the Lord's)... which was once a stopping point for those sentenced to death! What do the different chromeplated marbles that we walk on walking through 'I Quattro Canti', the intersection that represents the heart of the historic centre, symbolize? They are the coats of arms of the four districts of the  ancient Pietra: A Ciassa Veggia (old square), U Fossu (the ditch), L'Ajetta, A Nunsià (the Annunziata). At number 55 on via Mazzini, behind Chiesa Madre, is the headquarters of the Guido Moretti Philharmonic Society, founded in 1518, the first band in Italy! These and many other anecdotes bring to life the toponymy on the colored walls of the alleys written 'in the original Pietrese dialect' and make us understand how much the people of Pietra care about their dialect and their stories and what they do so that they should not be forgotten and can keep making the historical centre even more charming.
