It was in 1936 that Pepe Veraldi's body was found under a bridge in Catazaro Italy.  It was thought to be apparent suicide, as he was found drowned in shallow waters with a gash on his head.  His family disagreed, but nothing was ever done about it.  It wasn't until three years later in 1939 when a local teenager named Maria Talarico was walking near the bridge that the truth about Pepe was exposed. 

Maria Talarico had a gift that, up until this point, had gone unnoticed.  She was a natural magnet for spirits and could allow her body to be possessed by them, to be used a vessel for spiritual communication.  As she walked past the bridge where Pepe had come to rest, she suddenly collapsed on the bridge.  When she awoke, she spoke is a deeper, somewhat harsh voice that sounded like a male.  The male called for his widowed mother.  

When Pepe's mother arrived, she identified the voice as her son.  In addition, Maria had asked for wine, cigarettes, and playing cards-- all unusual for the teen according to her mother.  She had even called a game of cards with the neighbors and began calling them by names that were once Pepe's acquaintances.  Upon meeting with his mother Pepe informed her that he had been murdered by four of his friends by being tossed over the bridge and beaten to death with an iron bar.  As soon as he said that, Maria's body ran out of the house and assumed the exact position of Pepe's body, as found upon his death.  

Mrs. Veraldi was appalled by his behavior and demanded he stop possessing Maria at once.  At this, the girl awoke without any memory of the evening's bizarre events.  However, Maria went on to become an underground spirit medium, contacting many dead relatives for thousands of people.  She never revealed her true identity, always veiling her face to protect her appearance.  Upon retiring from her trade at an old age, she made a collection of pieces designed to give those interested the chance to do what she did.  This is one of several pieces that she made.  With this piece you can invite any spirit into your core being, to allow them to possess your body, that way the spirits can communicate with the living.  You will assume the identity of this spirit.  The best part about this piece is that if the spirit you are calling as any magical powers, you will gain these powers immediately and they will stay with you even after the spirit is gone.  Conceivably, you could call any spirit you want, simply to gain their powers.  This is an incredible thought and makes this piece a very valuable tool in gaining a wealth of powers!
