Background information
Here in my town there are still today, in this age of artificial satellites, strange superstitions. On the road that leads to Baiso there's a chestnut tree, attached to which there's a picture of the Virgin Mary. The inhabitants of Tresinara put it there because they say at night they can see it. They say that a cat goes by there, a "big mother cat", with eyes so bright that it lights up all the road. I however haven't seen it, nor have my parents.
(G. Lumetti, 1993)
