One of the most beloved symbols of the Capri, believed to bring joy and good fortune to any who wear it, is the tiny, jewelled "campanella", or bell.
According to island legend, Saint Michael aided a local shepherd boy in finding his lost lamb by ringing a small bell, the sound of which led the young peasant to his beloved pet.
To continue this tradition, near the end of the Second World War, the Island of Capri donated a bronze bell to the US President Roosevelt to bring on victory. This bronze masterpiece of island craftmenship can still be seen at the Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in New York.
