“Bargniff” and friends: a short bestiary of Lombard folklore

In Folklore by Andrea Panigada

The figures of the Italian folklore are no way inferior to those in Ireland, both in number and variety; even in Lombardia we have a fair amount of such. If is true that elves and goblins are scarce, although not entirely absent, however we find in abundance chimerical beasts, ghosts, various devils and witches.
