lago di carezza | südtirol, italia
as the legend says in once upon the time a beautiful water nymph lived in the pristine waters of lago di carezza. a wizard masaré, once heard her singing and fell in love, however, not even his magic was enough to win the nymph. with help from a witch, an elaborate plan was born. masaré was supposed to stretch a rainbow from the lake and disguise as a jewellery salesman, just to be able to approach the nymph.
sadly for the wizard, he forgot the salesman cloak and was recognized. the nymph jumped into the lake and was never seen since. angry masaré smashed the rainbow into pieces, which fell into waters of the lake. since then the ladin name of the lake is "lec de ergobando" (rainbow lake).
