PROJECT DIARY
This is the
project diary
of Collodi
primary school.
Many classes read a lot of legends
to discover some typical elements
of this kind of tales:
GHOST
CASTLE
BEATIFUL GIRL
MANY YEARS AGO…
We especially found this elements in
Malaspina legend and Lucida Mansi legend.
La leggenda del castello di Fosdinovo
The legend of Fosdinovo castle
THE CASTLE OF FOSDINOVO:
The legend
of Bianca Maria Malaspina
•
•
The castle lives, as well as its architectural splendor and landscape, including its famous legends.
The most famous is undoubtedly that which concerns the young Bianca Maria Aloysia, daughter
of Jacob (James) and Malaspina Olive Grimaldi. The beautiful girl was madly in love with a young
groom who wanted to marry at all costs. Parents, contrary to that love for the infamous coat of
arms the whole family, however, had threatened to shut her up the poor with bread and water in
the dungeons of the Castle. The young, not at all frightened by those threats, he had desisted
from their purpose of love. Rebellious attitude had forced parents to take a harsh decision. And so
it was that the groom was withdrawn from the country and the young woman locked in a convent.
Not that he wanted to take the vows or renounce his romantic dream. It was then reported to the
castle, locked in prisons and tortured until he wised up. Yet his will was bent. Only then, to avoid
occasions of sin, was buried alive in a cell, along with a dog, a symbol of fidelity, and a boar, a
symbol of rebellion.
To confirm the authenticity of the story, which happened in the recent excavations carried out
during the work of consolidation, remains were found bones belonging probably to a girl and two
animals.
It is thought that the full moon, the ghost of Bianca Maria still lingers about the rooms of the castle,
in the form of a girl with long hair resting on her back.

LA CANZONE
BIANCA MARIA ERA UNA BAMBINA
CHE IL CASO VOLLE, FOSSE NATA ALBINA,
PER QUESTO LEI DOVETTE RESTAR SOLA,
SENZA GIOCARE E SENZA ANDARE A SCUOLA.
SOLA FIN DALLA PRIMA COLAZIONE,
SENZA CONOSCER MAI NUOVE PERSONE,
MA UN RE SENZA CORONA E SENZA SPADA
LA SALUTO’ UN BEL GIORNO DALLA STRADA.
L’ORO DEL SOLE HA NEI SUOI CAPELLI
E COME IL CIELO, HA AZZURRI GLI OCCHI BELLI,
S’INNAMORO’ DI LUI, COSI’ DI SCHIANTO
E LE SEMBRO’ DI NON AVER MAI PIANTO
MA IL SUO PAPA’ SI ACCORSE DELLA STORIA
E VOLLE NE PERDESSE LA MEMORIA:
LEI FU MANDATA DRITTA IN UN CONVENTO
E IL GIOVANE SPARI’ COME IL VENTO.
NIENTE PIU’ SGUARDI E RAPIDI SALUTI,
DALLE SUORE NON ERANO VOLUTI.
UN GIORNO RITORNO’ NEL SUO CASTELLO,
DOVE NON C’ERA MAI NIENTE DI BELLO.
DICONO POI CHE QUANDO RINCASO’
CI FU QUALCUNO CHE LA IMPRIGIONO’,
INSIEME A DUE ANIMALI ASSAI FEROCI
PER POTER CONFONDERE LE VOCI.
E’ LA LEGGENDA DI BIANCA MARIA
DA TRAMANDARE A TUTTI IN OGNI VIA.
OGGI PER QUESTO LEI E’ UN FANTASMA
RESPIRA NEL CASTELLO COME ASMA.
OGGI PER QUESTO LEI E’ UN FANTASMA

beautiful girl that lived in Villa Mansi, near Lucca.

girl, killed her
old and rich
husband.
Lucia was
extremely vain.
But one day, she
discovered on her
face a wrinkle….
“Aaahhhhhh” –
she cried
So she made a pact
with the devil: she
was young for
another 30 years and
after this time the
devil took her soul.
After 30
years,
Lucida tried
to stop the
time. But the
clock kept
ticking ….
When the devil arrived, he
got Lucida on his firy
carriage. They rushed
around Lucca’s walls and
