According to the legend, in 1663, after the defeat of the Turkish in Vienna, a soldier, seeking to return home, crossed San Pellegrino Pass, but fell exhausted near the last house in the district of Moena. The "infidel" was rescued and feed. It caused such a commotion that the district’s inhabitants were called Turks. In fact, in Strada de Turchia there is the Turkish fountain, built in 1922, representing an Arabian’s head, wearing a turban decorated with a crescent moon and a star.
