When a story is closely connected with place, it is called radicamento legendario in Italian. Legendary rooting. For example I am working with the Etruscans in Tuscia (mainly Lazio), Roland-Orlando in Sutri, St. Benedict in Subiaco, St. Francis in Assisi, Kronos in Nemi, Hannibal in Spoleto, Alaric in Benevento, St. Peter on the Appian Way, Galgano (Gawain) near Siena. All these stories and many more have a distinct connection with a given place. By going to those places and witnessing the story there, your perception of that story changes entirely. Does anybody else have examples to give ?
