Once upon a time there was a lovely place facing the Ligurian Sea, a corner where the sea was deep blue, and where the sun reflected longer. The sirens, enchanted by that magnificent scenario offered by the island of Sestri Levante, elected home and reclined on the rocks, as little thrones, emerged from the water.
From shore, TIGULLIO, the youngest and most beautiful of tritons, saw one day SEGESTA, the most beautiful and charming of the sirens, with blue eyes lighter than the sea and hair lighter that the sun, and he fellt in love with her. One night, while the moon turned silver the rocks and many many stars palpitated like his heart, Tigullio attempted to kidnap Segesta, but Neptune, God of the Sea, did not like that such heaven was deprived of its more harmonious of its gems and punished, petrifying it, that arm leaning to grab the siren.
An isthmus was born, a wonderful isthmus, that joined the island to the continent.
The two faces of the village were created, the two sandy shores, the two little and romantic gulfs, that were donated by world renowned poets the names of “Baia del Silenzio” (Silent Bay) and “Baia delle Favole” (Fairy Tales Bay).
