Who was Bastola? Several legends and traditions related to the town of Gualdo Tadino are linked to a woman known as “Bastola”. According to many medieval chronicles, she was the person responsible for the fire that destroyed the town in the thirteenth century; Gualdo was then rebuilt thanks to Frederick II’s urban plan. Poets, artists, writers and historians described Bastola as a witch, an evil being, a lost soul, a spy or a seductive enchantress. Even in present days, at the end of the celebrations of our medieval festival, her evil figure and her execution at the stake are commemorated.
