Capri , one of the most beautiful islands in the world , has always been characterized by natural beauty and legends . The numerous caves and coves that alternate with steep and craggy cliffs on the island help to create breathtaking landscapes.
A fantastic place which with the rising of summer becomes the most sought-after tourist destination for tourists . The selfies taken in Capri with the famous Faraglioni are characteristic, three small rocky islets located a short distance from each other that create a beautiful scenographic effect.
It will therefore be for the landscape, it will be for its naturalistic charm, that this wonderful island has always been surrounded by an aura of mystery from which various legends and myths have arisen that still live today in the popular culture of the island and make tourists dream .
Among the most famous popular beliefs that animate the island of Capri is certainly the legend of the lucky bell .
It is said of a shepherd boy, fatherless, who owned only a little sheep that had been given to him shortly before his death by his father, and who one day, stopping to pick flowers, lost sight of. Between tears and despair, as he looked everywhere for her, suddenly hearing a distant ringing, hopeful he followed the sound and, running at night on the wet ground, without realizing it, he found himself on the edge of a ravine.
Legend has it that just at that moment, while the boy was in danger of falling, he was dazzled by a light and the little shepherd boy saw St. Michael on his white horse, who gave him a bell as a gift , with the promise that if he had any in the future following the sound, this would protect him.
In the enthusiasm of the beautiful encounter, the boy returned home bringing his mother the bell, and from that moment the bell has become not only the symbol of good luck but also the emblem of the island of Capri .
From this legend, the tradition of giving the bell of Capri to people we consider truly special has established itself over time, so that with each stroke of the lucky charm , their every wish can come true.
Without ever losing sight of this ancient legend from which everything originated, we at AMO CAPRI have given life to many creative lines featuring the Lucky Bell.
