Bra Square - Verona

I received the card from dottisilvia (Legends RR, Group 1) together with a legend of the city:

"Once upon a time, a rich man was condemned to death. he could have his life free only if he fulfilled Verona's greatest wish: to have a theatre. The night before his execution, he met the devil who agreed to help him. In exchange the man sold him his soul. The devil began building the theatre but the man soon decided not to sell his soul and he prayed Virgin Mary who helped him. She stopped the devil's work so Verona had his theatre (though incomplete). The devil was defeated and the man was set free."
