Figaro's parents explained to DD that Lucio lives in a mountain hut at St Lucio Pass...
and regularly commutes down to Buggiolo to see his fur-brother Pippo and get extra food from Pippo's parents.
Lucio always stops at this Chapel halfway between Buggiolo and St Lucio Pass to pay homage to his namesake Catholic saint. Saint Lucio has a very sad story.
St Lucio was a shepherd who lived in these mountains in the middle ages. Because St Lucio would give away food leftovers to the poor, he was fired by the greedy landowner who employed him. Another landowner promptly hired St Lucio and suddenly found himself showered with all sorts of unexpected blessings: his cows produced endless amounts of milk, his cheese rounds would self-regenerate after each cheese sale, and his sheep would continue to multiply. At the same time, the greedy landowner who had fired St Lucio suffered all sorts of calamities that drove his business into the ground. Eventually, the greedy landowner lost it and murdered St Lucio at the pass that now bears his name, where this chapel was later built in his memory.
Today, St Lucio Pass is a top hiking destination. Check out the quintessential Swiss signage listing out all the hiking options from the pass!
