The legend of the fade of the Subiolo lake

Where: Valstagna
(lago di Subiolo)
Genre: folklore   

Between Valstagna and San Gaetano there is a very beautiful and equally mysterious lake. They call it the Subiolo lake because in Veneto the 'subio' is the whistle, and from the source of the lake there is a constant whistle. This place is of great interest for speleo divers, as its waters originate from great depth, inside the so-called Elephant Cave. Furthermore, Lake Subiolo is also interesting for the many stories and legends that are told about it. The lake is spoken of in many ancient writings, and it is said that this body of water was inhabited by the fade of the Brenta, creatures with hairy arms and legs who came here to wash their laundry. One story in particular tells of a carpenter who, returning a little late in the evening, encountered fade as he crossed the bridge. They tried to lure him, showing him that there was no more water in the lake, but he did not let himself be duped. Thus he obtained that the fade fulfilled his wish, and became the most skilled carver ever.
