Val Contrin: the Conturina\'s song
Contrìn Valley, in the background Sassolungo/Langkofel group.

* * *

Once upon a time, in the Contrin Valley (upper Val di Fassa) lived a
beautiful girl, Conturina. Her stepmother and her half sisters were jealous
of her beauty, and asked a witch to cast a spell on Conturina: the
beautyful girl was turned into a stone statue and brought on the high
ridges of Ombretta Pass, in the Marmolada Range... They say that still
today, in upper Contrin Valley, you can hear Conturina singing: “Son de
sass e no me meve, son de crepa en Marmoleda, son na fìa abandoneda e no sé
per che resòn” (“I’m made of stone and I can’t move, I’m a rock in
Marmolada, I’m an abandoned daughter and I don’t know why!”)
