  • La Mefite è un luogo che si può definire "particolare", ubicato nella valle d’Ansanto e che da secoli è ritenuto il passaggio dalla terra agli Inferi. La Dea Mefite, antica divinità italica legata alle esalazioni di zolfo, veniva invocata per la fertilità dei campi e per la procreazione. Questo nome, fin dall'antichità, è stato associato al centro della Valle dell’Ansanto, in Irpinia, vicino al Comune di Rocca San Felice. Qui si trova il laghetto Mefite, caratterizzato dalla presenza di gas solforosi provenienti dal sottosuolo e che, a contatto con l’acqua, generano un ribollire di esalazioni tossiche e maleodoranti tanto che è citato da Virgilio nella sua Eneide come il luogo di congiunzione tra la vita e la morte. L'origine non è, come ritenuto da molti, da ricercarsi in un ipotetico vulcanismo che collega il monte Vulture con il Vesuvio e/o la solfatara; è "semplicemente" un fenomeno tettonico: l'area, infatti è un crocevia di faglie importanti che si intersecano e che mettono a contatto depositi evaporitici (tipo gesso) con le acque profonde di falda generando i gas che sfuggono verso l'alto fino ad incontrare la superficie e librarsi nell'aria. Chi oggi volesse visitare la Mefite può farlo ma con grande cautela ed è necessario trattenersi il meno possibile per via dei gas sprigionati (soprattutto anidride carbonica), in quanto in alcuni momenti , avvicinarsi troppo è fortemente pericoloso tanto l’aria è pesante ed irrespirabile. Non a caso, si sono registrate diverse morti, sia di persone che di animali e per chiunque voglia avvicinarsi è consigliabile mettersi sopra vento.
