Nativiy Scene Vandalised in Fiumicino

Country: Italy

Date of incident: December 19, 2021

As it was reported on the 19. December, the parish priest and the faithful of the church of Santa Maria Porto della Salute in Fiumicino found some Nativity scene figures destroyed. The life-size statues made of plaster and fibreglass of a shepherd and a donkey were thrown to the ground. The former had both hands cut off and the donkey had a broken ear. The other statues did not receive damage, as they were fixed to the structure.

The locals also remember that this is not the first time the Nativity Scene is vandalised, some years ago, the statue of the baby Jesus was stolen and had to be replaced.
