The legend of Cola Pesce, which existed in the Mediterranean area in the Middle Ages and has since spread, resulting in a plurality of versions, tells the exceptional and prodigious nautical skills of a half man, half fish who finds the sea his natural habitat. Assuming an interpretative hypothesis based on theoretic references developed around iniziatic ritual processes, Cola Pesce can be identified as a transitional figure and the sea as a place of limen.
