With " Curon ", Netflix has been offering new material for all fans of Mystery and horror series - the German Netflix hit " Dark " seems to serve as the clearest model, which also deals with missing persons cases and the dark secrets of a small town.

But unlike "Dark" , "Curon" is actually based on the true history of the municipality of Graun im Vinschgau and Reschensee - and on the legends that surround the famous church tower, the rising from the lake.

Real filming location, real history

First the facts: “Curon” was filmed in and around Graun in the Vinschgau, hence the title: the municipality in South Tyrol is called Curon Venosta in Italian. In the municipality are the villages Reschen am See (Italian Resia) and Graun (Curon) and the Reschensee (Lago di Resia).

The legend behind "Curon"

It should come as no surprise that there are a number of stories surrounding the iconic image of the bell tower protruding from the water. The best known is probably the legend that the bells start ringing under certain conditions (about in the coldest months of the year) - even though they were removed before the town was flooded.

“Curon” is now based on exactly this part of the legend: In the series it is the case that those who hear the ringing of the bells are doomed to death. And then when Anna ( Valeria Bilello ), the mother of the main characters Daria ( Margherita Morchio ) and Mauro ( Federico Russo ), disappears without a trace after returning to her hometown with her young children, it seems as if there was actually something about the legends ...
