"Rising From the Waters"

The Campanile di Curon is an unsettling sight - a bell tower protruding from the waters of the Lago di Resia like a ghostly reminder of the past. This anomaly came into being when the village of Curon Venosta was demolished and flooded in 1949 in order to unify the lakes of Resia, Curon and San Valentino alla Muta. Built over 700 years ago, the campanile survived the flooding and still stands tall amid the submerged foundations of the lost village. In winter, when the lake freezes over, it is possible to walk right up to the campanile and explore the historic edifice. As per local legend, one can hear the tower bells ring at twilight even though no bells remain in the campanile.
