A Legend Of Livorno


Legend has it that a woman was waiting for her man to return from the sea. Like so many fishermen's wives she spent her days waiting for that blessed boat and her love, until one day he was swallowed up by a rough sea.


She could not accept having lost him forever.

So she decided that if the sea had taken him, the sea would have to take her too, and maybe they could finally be together forever. So, one day she climbed up on the rock and let herself go among the waves. No one ever saw her again, nor was the body ever found.
They say that she danced when she was at sea ... she was a good and melancholic dancer, exorcising the absence of her man with the body, dancing like the waves between the notes. She swam dancing to her freedom.
So a painter who knew the story began to paint a libecciata on that rock, and on top of it put the dancer, about to let go. He called the painting "The rock of the ballerina", and from that moment on it remained for all Livorno.

The beauty of the legends is that there are mysteries that will remain such as the name of the painter. We managed to find the name of the dancer ... it seems that her name was Margherita.
