I remember ...

It was my friend Domenico Riga who told me of these falls. I never realized about them, maybe because I had gone in Colognati valley only in summer, when St. Onofrio's falls are dry. But, after Domenico's words, one glance was enough for me to "see" the dry falls.
I just had to wait for the right season, which is obviously not the summer.
