Communist and Anti-Israel Graffiti on Santa Maria della Pietà Church

Country: Italy

Date of incident: January 29, 2024

The external wall of the church of Santa Maria della Pieta, in via San Vitale, was daubed with symbols and the writing 'Israel = death', drawn in red paint. The letters "CCCP" and a hammer and sickle in red paint were also left on the wall.

The communist symbols were sprayed over the paintings of Popes on the walls. The incident seems to indicate both, an anti-Semitic and anti-Christian bias.
