Scilla e Cariddi erano due mostri marini che vivevano nello stretto di Messina. La leggenda narra che Scilla era una splendida ninfa, figlia di Forco e Crataide. Trascorreva i suoi giorni nel mare, giocando con le altre ninfe e rifiutava tutti i pretendenti. Quando il dio del mare Glauco si innamor? di lei, and? dalla maga Circe a chiedere un filtro d'amore, ma Circe a sua volta si invagh? di lui. Rifiutata da Glauco, rosa dalla gelosia, trasform? la rivale Scilla in un mostro con dodici piedi e sei teste, nelle cui bocche spuntavano tre file di denti. Secondo alcuni, intorno alla vita aveva appese teste di cani che abbaiavano e ringhiavano ferocemente. Scilla era immortale e l'unica maniera per difendersi da lei era quella di invocare l'aiuto di sua madre, la ninfa del mare Crataide. Il mostro si nascose in una spelonca dello stretto di Messina, dal lato opposto a quello di Cariddi, e quando i naviganti si avvicinavano a lei, con le sue bocche li divorava. Venne infine trasformata in roccia, e in questa forma la trov? Enea passando dallo stretto. Cariddi ? un mitico gorgo dell'estremit? settentrionale dello stretto di Messina. Descritto come un mostro figlio di Poseidone e di Gea, succhiava l'acqua del mare e la risputava tre volte al giorno con tale violenza da far naufragare le navi di passaggio. Odisseo, dovendo passare necessariamente tra i due mostri, prefer? avvicinarsi a Scilla poich? Cariddi avrebbe portato sicuramente la distruzione delle navi. Pi? tardi, dopo che i suoi uomini erano stati uccisi da Zeus per aver catturato gli armamenti di Elio, la nave di Odisseo venne attratta dal gorgo di Cariddi, e l'eroe sopravvisse soltanto perch? riusc? ad aggrapparsi ad un fico che sbucava dall'acqua. Quando, ore dopo, ricomparve la nave, Odisseo s'aggrapp? ad un albero riemerso, ed ebbe salva la vita.

I always loved mythology and, as often as you step from there, I think of these mythological monsters, with which Ulysses, on his return journey home, collided, risking death. The shot I really like, congratulations, as well as the caption! :-)
Merry Christmas!
A greeting.

Raffaele :-)
