Historical curiosities: the Salamander

Little known fact…

Curiosity: during the Medieval times it was believed that the salamander (the emblem of the City of Salsomaggiore), considered a legendary animal by many, lived only in the king palaces and had extraordinary powers like the one to survive in the flame and also to eat and extinguish them. Usually in heraldry is represented inflamed in its own bonefire and is also an allegory of the body and spiritual health, for this reason is perfect to represent Salsomaggiore.
