LEGEND OF THE MONACIELLO
Monaciello is Italian for little monk and is a myth similar to the leprechaun. The city of Naples was built over a tunnel system and the monaciello was believed to guard the monk's wine cellars in these tunnels. Legend records tales of these hobbit-monks secretly appearing to people in their most dire straights and providing exactly what was needed.
Sometimes a little Monaciello is all you really need!
