Among the events dedicated to Saint Domenico, together with the event taking place in Cocullo, we find the commemoration of the miracle of St. Domenico and the wolf in Pretoro. The miraculous event tells of a child that is kidnapped by a wolf while his parents are in the forest collecting wood: St. Domenico tames the wolf, and the latter takes back home the small child. The miracle of St. Domenico and the wolf is reenacted on the edges of a wood, not far from the centre of the picturesque village of Pretoro.
