the-woman-in-white asked: Thanks for the suggestion! What/who exactly is "Mazzerismu"? I've tried doing a quick search, and can't seem to find anything. Any help?
Try searching “mazzeru” , “mazzerismu corsica” , “mazzeru corsica”. There’s a documentary with english subtitles on youtube. In corsican culture a mazzeru is a “death-bringer”. In his dreams the mazzeru kills animal symbols (totems ?) of people and those people later die in the real life, usually after an odd number of days. To become mazzeru one has to be badly baptised, meaning that a part of the ceremony was omitted or went wrong. Mazzeri live in village communities but keep to themselves. They can be identified by their amazingly beautiful eyes. Today there are said to be about 30 mazzeri living in the south of Corsica.
I’m starting a new blog that will be strictly related to Corsica and the story I’m working on. THis blog still stays as a place for stuff I enjoy :)
