The inaccessible mountain system with overlapping ledges, in Reggio Calabria area, allows the coexistence of scenarios with different altitudes and atmospheres. There is something ancestral in the divine order of this massif with its mysterious caves, something liturgical in the white light that envelops its broom trees and flocks. The illustration quotes a legend dating back to the 4th century according to which Pope Sylvester, fleeing from the persecution of Christians ordered by Emperor Constantine, withdrawed from the world in a cave in Asprumunti. The emperor, struck by leprosy, wants him back in Rome to ask for his grace and after receiving it he converts himself. Before leaving for the capital, Pope hid a metal cross underground, found much later by a grazing bovine. The Sanctuary of the Virgin Mary of Polsi would rise up exactly at that point.
