  • We got some time to have succeeded him in finding but its beauty and grandeur is great, well worth a visit, a hug and to stand beneath her reading or laid to rest. all around a great peace. In going there made us a beautiful white cat company with black spots, you put forth to rest with us and had lots of company. (The oak of the witches of Gragnano, bordering San Martino in Colle, who has 600 years of life, also known as oak of Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio, he was inspired to write the adventures of the puppet. The tree, of the species Quercus pubescens, has almost unreal dimension: 24 metres high, with a diameter of 4.5 metres, while the hair has a diameter of over 40 meters. Located in the Park of Villa Carrara and is the subject of two legends. It is said that this plant was the meeting point for witches that they used to do their rituals and dancing above it. Its flattened shape, with branches developed almost horizontally, unusual feature for the trees in this family, it would be due to the repeated presence of witches on the canopy. The second legend connects the oak to the novel "the adventures of Pinocchio. Story of a puppet ". This would be the "great oak" where Pinocchio was hanged by the assassins who wanted to steal the gold coins and next to it then the puppet he met the cat and the Fox, who persuaded him to bury the money in the field of miracles in the city of catchfools.)
