In this work is examined the genre of local legend of some Italian region after an excursus on history of oral literature in our century. Applying to this phenomenon the concept of Bartoli's "areal linguistics" on suggests to verify a hypothesis: the superimposition of legends linked to patron saints on other, more ancient and laical, that should in fact persist unalterated in the lateral areas of the Italian peninsula, areas that are more distant from the cultural control exercised, on the other hand, from the Catholic Church on the central area.
