La Zucca d'Oro di Venzone

The Legend of the Golden Pumpkin

Once upon a time there was a noble town called Venzone. Many were the beautiful buildings and landmarks which the town owned, but the cathedral was the most beautiful among them all. To make it even more beautiful, a golden ball was commissioned to be set on the top of the cathedral’s belfry. But something went wrong, and the inhabitants found themselves looking at a big golden pumpkin falling apart from the top of the belfry.
