Mysterious Marca - The mysteries of the Marchlands of Treviso
The province of Treviso is a mysterious land. Reading between the lines of its history you can find hidden stories about great old families, of damned souls, wandering spirits and mysterious creatures – uncanny events, unknown secrets which only the more curious and adventurous may wish to discover.
The stories of "Mysteriuos Marca" represent an alternative way of discovering this so-called 'gioiosa et amorosa' land (as it has been described since the twelfth century) and so quenching one's thirst for mystery... the beginning of a journey in search of history and myth combined, somewhere between reality and fantasy, with the magic of the past that re-emerges on feast-days and on the occasions of commemorations.
