An Italian village that pops up every couple of decades
“San Pietro in Campiano” is located in the province of Reggio Emilia in Italy. This village has attracted the world’s attention due to its unique history: it “appears” every few decades due to the peculiarities associated with overshadowing.
The village is located in a fertile valley, and despite its substantial history, it is sometimes flooded due to heavy rains and floods. For many years, the water formed a lake around the village and the village was cut off from the rest of the world. However, when the water level drops, San Pietro in Campiano reappears.
This unique phenomenon makes the village uninhabitable on a permanent basis, and locals are forced to relocate temporarily to other places during floods. However, they always return to their homes when the water level drops to resume their daily lives.
This phenomenon has become famous for its uniqueness and attracts tourists who want to see a village “emerging” from the water.
