A beloved bandit

The world of Farinet

Our big-hearted outlaw, smuggler and counterfeiter "Farinet" sometimes called "The Robin Hood of the Alps". He decided to escape from his life of misery and started to sink and sell counterfeit money by distributing part of his production to the most destitute. Farinet will go to the end of his dreams, he who loved Life and Wine. Only boredom " Berne minted the same currency as him..."
P. Thurre

Come to Saillon in the footsteps of this mythical character.
