Duomo – Carlina’s ghost

Duomo has its phantom as well: the ghost of Carlina from Schignano, a little village near Como. In order to avoid the practice of "Jus primae noctis", still carried out in her village, she married here her Renzino in a cold October day. However, the young woman was suffering from guilt as she spent the night before with a stranger, becoming pregnant. When she went up to the church's roof with her husband, she had a panic attack and started to scream and run among the statues. The legend says that she fell down from the roof and her body has never been found. Nowadays, a figure in black with blank white eyes appears in the pictures of the newly married couple coming out from Duomo.
