The She-Bear is a neapolitan folktale of a girl named Preziosa, who, after her mother’s death, 
was forced into a marriage with her father. In order to escape from the hands of the savage man, 
with the help of an old witch she turned herself into a bear, ran away into the forest 
and lived there together with other animals.
