During this special event, spectators will have the opportunity to listen to the compelling and gloomy tales about three incorporeal presences that are still rumored to wander in the halls of the Castle and which often meet the visitors: the white lady who annoys those who temporarily occupy her lodgings; the peasant woman whose laments are still heard on full moon nights; the dark man who, always wrapped in a large black cloak, spends his time in the Baronial Hall where even the spirit of the heroines at night come to life to dance with him. Amidst whispers, noises and disturbing presences, the rooms of the Castello della Manta will be enlivened by entertaining presences to celebrate the arrival of Halloween. The event is also suitable for children and all participants in the evening are invited to disguise themselves.
