Vandals Attack Church of of San Michele in Lucca

Country: Italy

Date of incident: July 22, 2022

On the 22nd of July, the church of San Michele in Lucca was attacked by vandals. Someone destroyed a piece made of stone which framed the door on the right side of the church and scattered the pieces on the steps of the church. The parish priest, Don Lucio Malanca lodged a complaint with the police. He also found shattered glass on the floor from a bottle he believes was used to scratch the marble.

Don Lucio lodged the complaint at the barracks 'A really bad gesture they crumbled the stone'

'The damage itself,' comments Don Lucio Malanca, 'is not very serious. But the gesture is truly disconcerting. The stone has been crumbled, reduced to dust. This leaves a bitter taste. The most serious thing is that there is no respect for religious buildings, for monuments in general'.
