The History of Capri's Bells

Years ago, there lived a poor shepherd on the island of Capri, the only son of a widow. The two lived in a rough shack and their only possession was a sheep that the shepherd would take to graze on the slopes of Mount Solaro.
One evening, the young shepherd stopped to gather flowers and lost sight of his sheep. He was petrified and wondered what would become of him and his mother without their precious pet.

Just then, he heard the distant sound of bells and ran toward it until he got to the the edge of a gulley. There, he was suddenly blinded by a bright light and Saint Michael appeared to him on the back of a white horse and told him, "My son, take this bell and follow its sound; it will protect you from harm".
With these words, the saint gave the boy the bell that had been hanging around his neck.

From that day on, the shepherd's life was one of abundance and joy and he had everything he could wish for.
The famous "Villa San Michele" was later built on the spot where Saint Michael appeared and the lucky bell became a symbol of Italy's island of Capri...
May it bring you luck and prosperity!
