In Japan there is an island full of cats, the island of Aoshima. But not everyone knows that even in Italy, there are small realities for cats. We find a very small one in a tiny hamlet, Ciubiz, in the province of Udine, inhabited by five people and twenty-six cats. But in Italy there is a country dedicated to cats, in Piedmont, precisely the village of Brolo.
Brolo is a small fraction of the municipality of Nonio, in the province of Verbania. The town is located on the shore of Lake Orta.
But why is Brolo called the land of cats? A mythological legend refers to when the hamlet of Brolo asked the town of Nonio to have its own independent parish.
The inhabitants of Nonio used to answer that, independent it would become independent only if the mice had worn the mantle, that is, never.
When the bishopric finally agreed, the inhabitants of Brolo hung a rat with a cloak on the door of the church. They practically assigned themselves the nickname of "cats" to enhance their qualities as hunters.
The inhabitants of Brolo took their inspiration from this legend. Using the figure of the cat to give the village its own identity.
In the summer of 2006, the monument to the cat was inaugurated, wanted and built precisely to designate Brolo as the "town of cats".
In the streets and squares of the small village you can admire many representations of cats. They are found on tiles, paintings, murals and other forms of art that you can admire by visiting this beautiful and characteristic hamlet.
