Stregheria is subtle but complex ritual magic, an esoteric form of witchcraft that must be taught from practitioner to initiate. Generally a more ceremonial form of magic, stregheria is of middling scope and power but impractical for immediate needs. Stregheria is notable in that practitioners do not necessarily align themselves to spirits, deities or supernatural entities to obtain or work their magic.
