Interesting Book! Venetian Legends and Ghost Stories A Guide To Places Of Mystery In Venice

While on vacation in Italy I stayed in Venice and found a book (in English) about ghosts and weird stories. I found "Venetian Legends and Ghost Stories A Guide To Places Of Mystery In Venice" by Alberto Toso Fei. (It was my first time in Italy, and everyone should save up to go).

I Recommend this Book! -   This book isn't just about ghost stories, it's about witches, mermaids, shrieking skulls, curses, dealings with the devil, wizards and more. Italians have a LOT of weird stories and this book was full of them. It was very interesting and entertaining and a good read.

One weird story called "The Squid With the Eyes of a Woman"  involved a not so friendly woman named Linda Cimetta who disappeared in April 1947 from her Venice shop. A Gondolier was arrested for her murder and was accused of trying to send contraband to her - and it was a deal gone wrong. So he murdered her, dismembered her and stuffed her parts in a trunk. Then he tossed the trunk into one of Venice's canals  The trunk was later found by two boys fishing, who found the grisly parts under squid. 
  Fisherman who fish in that area later have reported seeing many squid with the eyes of a woman. Creepy!!
