The Legend

A place of transit and a crossroads for stories, the roots of the Costa degli Dei reach deep into the myths of Magna Graecia.

Even now, legends whose origins are lost in the mists of time resound along these shores. One such legend is that of the courageous “Donna Canfora” who consecrated her life to the memory of her lost consort and the one tied to the mysterious figure of Manto, the oracle who offered answers to the questions posed by sailors and passing mariners who wished to discover safe routes and good auspices.

Legends tell that even Ulysses turned to the prophetess before facing the monsters of Scylla and Charybdis in order to know what his future held.

Now the legend of Manto is ready to be re-lived, enclosed in a perfume which speaks of passions, heroes, freedom and warmth.

It is ready to emerge from Acqua degli Dei.
