And if you like stories ..."The legend of Foionco"

It is said that in the Emilian Apennines, in particular in the area between the Secchia and Panaro rivers, lives a legendary animal known to all as il Foionco.
The Foionco it is a very special animal: it looks like a nocturnal bird of prey but has 3 legs, a hooked beak and a disheveled tuft of feathers on the head. He is an incurable chicken thief and is lazier than a dormouse (it seems that he only mates by taking advantage of trembling earthquakes). But the most curious peculiarity of this strange predator is (hear, hear!) his unbridled passion for… Lambrusco wine!
During the night it would abandon the boar where it has its shelter on the Apennines and, slowly, glide over the hill and then over the plain between Reggio Emilia and Modena, in search of the fattest hens and the best Lambrusco. There are many who swear they saw it fluttering around between the two provinces in front of the entrance to some tavern. Someone has even tried to demonstrate, with an experiment, the existence of the legendary Foionco, leaving a bottle of Lambrusco outside the door every evening.
It never happened that the next morning the wine was still out the door!
