The Rafforza l'incantesimo is a potent transubstantiation spell from the Book of the Damned.
In an attempt to strengthen the Soul Containment Barrier Spell, Rowena performs the Rafforza l'incantesimo. However, the barrier proves to be too weak, and the ghosts too strong, causing the spell to fail.
The spell requires a few ingredients poured into a bowl. Once the ingredients are set up, the caster has to recite the following incantation:
- "Prendi ciò che è debole, rendilo forte. D'una piuma d'oca fai una spada. D'una piuma d'oca fai una spada. D'una piuma d'oca fai una spada. Dalla nebbia cemento -- dalla nebbia cemento possente, impenetrabile, inflessibile. Rendilo forte. Rendilo forte. Rendilo forte. Rendilo forte."
The spell is in Italian and translates to:
Take what is weak, make it strong. Make a sword out of a goose feather. Make a sword out of a goose feather. Make a sword out of a goose feather. From the concrete fog - from the powerful, impenetrable, inflexible concrete fog. Make it strong. Make it strong. Make it strong. Make it strong.
If the spell works, the effects can be seen as the incantation is performed. However, if the spell fails, the caster can sense it and why and the spell appears to cause a minor magical backlash against the caster.
