On the outskirts of Bonifacio there was a poor little house habituated by the widow of Paolo Saverini. It was built on the mountain and had a cleft almost surrounding the whole house. This place was located towards the South cost of Sardina, where the Longosardo village is. Longosardo was known for refusing the Corsican criminals.
She lived alone with her son Antonia and their dog Semillante. Antonia and Semillante were very good friends and they went hunting together.
One dark night after a quarrel Antonia was coming back home. Nicolas Saverini stabbed Antonia in the back as he was leaving. Nicolas escaped to Longosardo.
His mother received the body of the dead child. She didn't want anyone around her except the loyal dog. She did not cry about it, what she did was promised him a vendetta.
As she approached Antonia to give her last goodbye she thought of a way of keeping his vendetta. Some days later she buried her son, he was gone forever.
Semillante howl over and over because she missed Antonia. One day the widow was looking out the window towards Longosardo. Semillante started howl owing again and it was in that moment that mother Saverini thought of a savage revenge.
