Here a couple of useful links, some fro Europe in general, and some Italy.
Witches of Europe

Witchcraft timeline for Italy

Witches of Switzerland

I couldn't find anything on Nusco being a Witch Hunt hotbed. Usually if one "Witch" was executed in a town others followed. Such as Castelnuovo, where 8 innocent people lost their lives in a frenzied Witch hunt.

Let us know please if you find anything!

Best of luck
Jim :)
