Once upon a time...

there was a table on the Majella mountain
where the brigands stopped to rest. It was
not a table ready for a party, but a hard
stone slab, made out of Majella stone.

On Majella, impressive and rugged, with its caves, dense beech woods,
valleys and precipices, there are still important historical testimonies,
including the Tavola dei Briganti, a set of limestone slabs on which bandits
and shepherds have scratched their names and their stories.
It is located in Blockhaus, near what in 1863 was a military outpost rebuilt
by the Piedmontese on the foundations of an ancient Bourbon building as a
deterrent for the passage of bandits. During the night bandits were making
fun of the soldiers engraving their names and leaving anti-unification
messages few steps away from the fort. One of the most popular says:
Read my memory for the dear readers. In 1820 Vittorio Emanuele King of
Italy was born. Before it was the kingdom of flowers, now it is the kingdom
of misery.
The stories of the Majella brigands are living stories recalling a period
characterized by misery, poverty, which unwind along the entire Appennine
slope of the Mother Mountain.
