The dry sandstone walls help to combat the hydrogeological instability because the dry walls retain the heart from the landslide slopes, facilitating the passage of excess water. In the ravines among the stones there is also a great biodiversity of insects, wild flowers, small fauna.

“To keep us away from a deep well that rose at the top of the hill, our mother told us to be careful, because the Maga Luna was hiding right there.
Only a few years later we realized that Maga Luna was nothing more than the face of the Full Moon that was reflected in those dark waters, illuminating them in white

When it was our turn and we started working these lands, we found a commemorative statue of a woman turned upside down. Once the meaning was discovered, the sculpture became our symbol of luck.
In 1978 these statues were made in tribute to the very few women who survived the terrible plague.
