* An ancient and mysterious legend hovers around Palazzo Donn'Anna, a building in the heart of Posillipo, built at the end of the 15th century on an existing building
He called it “Villa delle Sirene” and spent three days and three nights of intense passion with Beppe.  Inside the villa, "pitfalls" were designed to prevent those who set foot from leaving.  Unfortunately, those who entered were inevitably the victim of a sad fate.  Beppe could only be the first victim: the Queen could not allow him, having left the villa, to tell around what had happened, compromising his reputation.  Thus it was that the floor opened under her feet and the man sank into the sea.

 As soon as she heard the news, Beppe's girlfriend, Stella, began to torment herself over her disappearance and cursed the Queen with all her strength, so much so that all her curses came true.  Even after the death of Queen Giovanna II, the curse did not stop: she continued to incessantly strike all the aristocratic owners of the villa.
