Amico of San Pietro Avellana

Amico of San Pietro Avellana

Saint Amico/Sant'Amico is the patron saint of San Pietro Avellana. He was an Italian monk who worked in the Apennine region of Southcentral Italy (al confine coll'Abruzzo e Molise), most known for the story of the wolf ("il lupo") who slayed the donkey ("'u ciuccio") and was cursed; forced to serve Sant'Amico as a "ciuccio" for the rest of his life, carrying chopped wood from the church to the monastery.
