The stories in this page might not be as amazing as we would like them to be, but they are real life stories.
This page will be about the town I came from our personal twilight stories (2)
Genzano fountain Cavallina, Personal twilights zone
Welcome to my article of, personal twilight stories, at Genzano fountain Cavallina
Wherever you go in the world where there are ancient buildings, old folks always seem to come up with ghostly stories of this place or that place being haunted, because some strange things seem to happen. My native town of Genzano has also these ghostly stories, because old people say that these things exist. So let us see if there are reasons to believe them, so, let me tell you a story that has happened to me and to some my friends and other things that seem strange enough to believe that these things really exist, here is my story and what really happened.
My mother grandma and other elders of the town of Genzano kept telling us not to go alone to this fountain Cavallina when it was dark, but as we all know young people sometimes do not believe their elders and want to find out for themselves and so did I and my friends one night.
But before I tell you this ghostly story, let me tell you why I would like to tell you that, dear readers in my last post I have been talking about the town where I came from and its ancient fountain called Cavallina, You see, because I was talking about Genzano town and this fountain called Cavallina, I have remembered a particular ghostly event and also a dream that I had about this fountain when I was young, there are also other creepy happenings and ghostly stories about this fountain; I am saying this because I would like to tell you some stories that I personally was involved about this fountain, not only at the time when I was young but also later on in my life. So I hope you would like to hear them; I know that somehow they might be going to feel strange to some of you, but this was my personal experience, so let me tell you.

The fountain Cavallina personal twilight zone
As I have said above, when I was young my mother grandma and other elders of the town kept telling us not to go alone to this fountain Cavallina when it was dark, because some people had seen ghostly sights; but if you had to go there not to go alone and go as early as possible after dusk, so even when we were coming back from the fields from that side of town, and we had to go past this fountain we had to be careful as soon as it was dark, if you had to water your horse or donkey or whatever animals you had to water them during the day or early before dusk. I have to say that there were also some other unspeakable activities that went on near this fountain before dusk, but about these activities of dumping human excrement I am doing to tell you later on in another article, because now we are talking about ghostly things at this fountain at night.
To cut a long story short I am going to tell you what happened to me and some of my friends. As you all know young men in their later teen are not easily scared and they start thinking that these ghostly stories are not true at all, so, I and a few friends of mine were going to pay a visit to this fountain Cavallina at night; so, one late evening we went to see this fountain Cavallina and from above as we approached the fountain there was nobody to be seen, so, we said to each other, you see there is nobody here and there are no ghosts around, we really thought that we were going to see something unusual at this fountain, so we were disappointed saying to each other there are no ghosts to be seen.
So we kept going to the fountain when we saw a white rabbit in a corner and soon we gave chase as we wanted to grab this rabbit, not just for fun, but because we wanted to eat the rabbit as meat was expensive those days. There were four of us giving chase to this white rabbit, but the rabbit kept escaping us, but we kept running after it and the rabbit was taking us very close to a ravine which had a drop of over ten meter and any one that would fall down there would instantly end up dead.
Anyhow suddenly one of us said; what rabbit that is not a rabbit? Suddenly we realized that we were not chasing a rabbit at all, but we were chasing a ghost or an evil spirit that was trying to take us over the ravine to kill us if we had followed it. It is said that ghost or evil spirits lose their full power when people realize that they are a supernatural apparition, so, in this case we were lucky when we realized that what we were chasing was not a rabbit at all, it was an evil spirit; well at least this is what we were made to believe then from the elders, when we told our story.
What I have written above was real life happening, but what I am going to tell you next is only a dream, but you can say that this dream that I am going to tell you belongs also to the twilight zone, just like my life story about chasing the white rabbit belongs to the twilight zone.
My fountain Cavallina twilight dream
What I have written above was real life happening, but what I am going to tell you next is only a dream, but you can say that this dream that I am going to tell you belongs to the twilight zone also, just like my story about chasing the white rabbit belongs to the twilight zone.
So, let me tell you my dream, because what I dreamed about is very strange; you see I was dreaming about an old person who wanted to teach me something at this fountain Cavallina. I know that now you are saying that this is a stupid reason just to tell you a dream and dreams are only dreams and they cannot be classified as being real, but before you judge me and my dream just read what I have to say, because it could be interesting especially if you believe that dreams sometimes have some useful meanings, or they can come from the afterlife world.
To understand this dream better I need to explain that this old person might have been the spirit my great, great, great grandma who lived not far from this fountain, and who had used this fountain during all her life, perhaps she had lived through one of this contagious disease that require washing everything properly to avoid contamination and this is what she wanted to teach me.
When I dreamed this dream I was in Australia in my late forties, but in my dream I was only a boy about ten or eleven years old, (I suppose that this difference in age in the dream wanted to show me that the old lady was very ancient spirit compared to me), so, this very old lady was standing beside me at this fountain Cavallina, strange as it may seem I had taken some dishes and other eating utensil from the old house where my grandma lived to wash at the fountain; the old lady was telling me to wash everything under the first spout of the fountain and keep everything in the first bay near this first spout, so that they would not be contaminated, and so I did; but as you know dreams sometime are very strange and suddenly I found that some of my dishes were in the second bay of the fountain, so I started to worry about it, but the old lady said to me not to worry about it, I was protesting to her saying that you said that the other bays are contaminated, and she said don’t worry just for this time and you will soon know why, when you wake up.
Then I woke up and realized that it was only a dream, so I understood the old lady that I did not have to worry about the dishes in the second bay of the fountain, because it was only a dream and the dishes even though had been contaminated I was not going to use them anyhow, just because they were only in my dreams, and they were thousands of miles away, in another era and in another place. I believe that the old lady was one of my forbear who popped up in my dreams to teach me a lesson about food contamination or something like that, and she did.
Since we have been talking in our last two hubs about the town of Genzano di Lucania, which is indeed the town that I have come from originally, when I came to Australia. I have been thinking that perhaps it would be the right thing to do; if in my next hub I will be talking more about, the town which I have come from. See you there.
