Fozzano Porto Vecchio, Bonifacio

Villages | Fozzano | Corsica

This picturesque village is full of history, having inspired the writer Prosper Mérimé for his famous short-story "Colomba", who has for theme the "Vendetta".

This private war of vengeance between families, which made justice themselves, and within the framework of which a family member had been offended and had to take revenge against the family of the offender, has made thousands of deaths through history in Corsica. Colomba Carabelli's house, as well as its vault familliale dating the XIVth century, are located in this village.
