Two Crucifixes destroyed in churches of Toscana

Florence, November 29, 2013


In Prato (Florence, Italy) acts of vandalism were committed in two Catholic churches. Crucifixes have been torn down and damaged in the churches of San Pier Forelli and San Bartolomeo, reports

The Crucifix in the San Pier Forelli Church was highly venerated, as the Catholic Saint Leonardo da Porto Maurizio had used it in the 18th century. The Crucifix in the San Bartolomeo Church had already been damaged two weeks earlier.

The province's authorities are providing 20 thousand Euro to restore the sacred objects.
