The place name Belsedere, where a farm is now found, seems to derive from the curves of a very beautiful noblewoman who enjoyed letting all the young men in the area fall in love with her but without ever indulging them. To make her pay for this attitude, a sorcerer was sought out, who made her find large and soft skeins of golden and silver wool hanging from the branches of the peach tree in her garden. The lady immediately had them spun into a dress, which she showed off during a village festival in the church. Obviously, no one looked at the priest or the altar any more: they only had eyes for her, the graceful lady dressed in gold and silver. But then, the unexpected happened: the spell took place and the dress, as if by magic, disappeared, leaving the poor woman completely naked. But that spell only enhanced the graces of the lady even more who then became known by everyone as “Belsedere” (literally “beautiful bottom”) like the place where she lived.
