Pietra Luna Civenna

Comments

It’s a boulder of pyramidal shape that owes its curious name to a crescent engraved on one side, of natural origin, accompanied by the letters PLDB (Moon Stone of Bellagio) and the date 1782, which commemorates the end of a period of dispute between the people of Bellagio and to Magreglio. Located on the edge of the Piano Rancio, next to a wedding banquet facility by the same name. Pietra Luna in 1984 was declared a Natural Monument of the Lombardy Region.

There are countless legends flourished around these boulders as protagonists God, the saints, the Madonna and the evil Lucifer. The legend tells that in fact the engraving of the crescent is a hand print by the devil. Boulders similar to Pietra Luna were given the title of "Trovanti", or "runaways" which came to describe boulders, notable for their size, shape and position. Their "truancy was as a result of having come from distant locations due to the force of glaciers, generally constituted by rocks other than those that form the ground on which it rests. Fine engraved recesses make it possible to climb on top of the boulder that Dominia the two arms of the lake.
