The legend of Saint Lucia

It was in the fourth century that the legend of Saint Lucia was born.

A young girl of the nobility of Syracuse who obtained the miraculous cure of her mother suffering from an incurable disease by repeated prayers to the Virgin Mary.

Devoting an unlimited worship and devotion to the latter, she tore her eyes and threw them into the sea so as not to be diverted from her faith and to drive away her suitors.

Totally turned to prayer, she performed many miracles.

In response to this devotion, the Blessed Virgin restored her sight and gave her more beautiful and brighter eyes (Occhji belli e luccichenti).

The seal of the shell called the "rough turbo" symbolizes the eyes of Saint Lucia.

Wearing one would take away the bad eye and promote luck.

In Corsica, the eye of Saint Lucia is considered lucky.
