THE LEGEND OF THE DARK BROWN
"An ancient legend tells that around the year 1100, during the period of the domination of the Moors in Sicily, in the Kalsa district of Palermo, there lived" a beautiful girl with pink skin comparable to peach blossoms at the peak of flowering and a beautiful couple of eyes that seemed to mirror the beautiful gulf of Palermo. "The girl was almost always at home, and spent her days taking care of the plants on her balcony. One day a young Moro found himself passing by, who , immediately fell in love with her and decided to have her at all costs. So without delay he entered the girl's house and immediately declared his love to her. The girl, struck by so much ardor, returned the love of the young Moro, but soon her her happiness vanished as soon as she learned that her beloved would soon leave her to return to the East, where a wife with two children was waiting for her. So it was that the girl waited for the night and as soon as the Moor fell asleep she killed him and then cut off his head. From the head of the Moor he made a vase where he planted some basil and put it on display outside on the balcony. In this way, the Moor, being unable to leave, would remain with her forever. Meanwhile, the basil grew luxuriantly and aroused the envy of all the inhabitants of the neighborhood who, not to be outdone, had clay pots built specifically in the shape of a Moor's Head ".
