This character originated from a legend. In the village of Breuil, in Valtournenche, when there were only huts for pastures, lived a beautiful girl of extraordinary beauty. The giant Gargantua, who knew these valleys, returning from Zermatt, saw her, he fell in love and carried her off. He decided to hide her the mountains. All the inhabitants of the valley, aware, came together to look for the girl. In front of such insistence giant surrendered. He loaded the girl on the sledge to return her to its people who organized a big party attended by all the inhabitants of the Valley.
