THE RED WATER SPRING

Renato Cerisola dives in the colors of this meander near Ferento, an Etruscan village in the province of Viterbo. According to a Medieval legend, the reddish hue of the stream’s rocks – caused by the amount of iron contained in the water – is an indelible memory of the bloodshed caused by the ferocious 1169 battle, in which the people of Ferento were vanquished by the powerful Viterbo army.
