Description

Inseparable Sisters

The great-granddaughter of the landlord Paul de Casparis, the widow Maria Gregori-de Casparis, married Janett Cos in the 19th century. Her two granddaughters, the sisters Bigna (1838-1910) and Maria (1831-1910) Cos, each received a part of the house and moved in with their families. The relationship of the sisters was so intimate that they could hardly stand it separately. They had a passage door installed in the 95 cm thick partition wall to connect the two parts of the house. So they could always hear, shout and visit each other. The extraordinary passage has been preserved to this day.

In the audio, Walter Willi, owner in the ninth generation, recalls stories about the former residents and how the house roots him. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
