La tagliatrice di vermi

I had a very bad stomach ache so, one day, mom took me to a lady whom she called the Worm Cutter. He made me stand and made crosses with the thumb (precisely one at the throat, the other on the navel repeated three times), while with the other hand he was holding a cross made of wood. The strange thing is that he also spoke softly, but I didn’t hear anything. Who knows what he said to drive those annoying worms out of my tummy! She didn’t ask for money, nor did she want me to thank her. But the pain went away immediately.
