Sorrento Wedding Venues: Popular Stories about the Origin of the City
Like many Italian cities, Sorrento is also linked with a popular story based on legends that are told and passed down from generation to generation. The Sorrentines are considered friendly, happy and rather generous people towards others that is supported by a well-known ancient narrative. The legend says that Sirentum was a young girl born from the union of Mirone and Leucosia, two peasants living in the hilly area of Casarlano. Her birth was a result of the promise made by her parents to the Sirene temple. Her golden blonde hair, gentle character, love of life, cheerfulness while playing made Sirentum a unique creature. The legend also tells that after meeting with the successor of the Durazzo Family, the two fell in love. They were both very amiable and hospitable with the inhabitants of the city, offering wines, honey sweets, almonds and figs without any hesitation. However, on a dreadful day of 1558 when the Saracens landed on the peninsula, not only did they raze all these riches of the population, but captivated them as well, among which was beautiful Siretum. It was only several years later that Sirentum returned to her country with the help of its settlers, including those living in utmost poverty, who had donated all their possessions in order to liberate her.
Sorrento Wedding Venues: The Marriage Traditions
Similar to the cities of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento is tightly connected with the tradition still alive today that is equally evidenced in the marriage rite. For instance, until recently, there was, and, even nowadays, in many conventional families, there is a practice according to which the groom, accompanied by his parents, pays a visit to the bride’s residence in order to have a look at an extended dowry list eight days prior to the wedding date. However, this is only one out of the myriad of beliefs associated with this magic area. Another rite observed these days represents a cortege formed by friends and relatives, being responsible for accompanying the bride to the church ceremony and the newlyweds to the wedding reception venue, hurling rise in sign of good luck.
