Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

“I believe the exhibition is important because now is the time to rebuild L’Aquila, to rebuild Abruzzo. For this reason it’s very important to push pressure on people to go, to show people how L’Aquila, Abruzzo, is nice.”

And visitors seemed to like what they saw.

The exhibit is called The S.O.S Art from Abruzzo An exhibit not to forget. It’s a collection of 200 recovered items. Among them paintings, sculptures, body armour, jewelry and crucifixes.

Less than five months after the earthquake struck, the initiative of finding and renovating artwork for this exhibit began.

Artwork with broken pieces and chipped paint reflect the damage suffered by L’Aquila. But other pieces look untouched. Some art was found intact, a remarkable state considering the earthquake’s magnitude was 6.3.

“Some of these churches now are destroyed by last year’s earthquake. But fortunately some pieces are here in good condition so we can show excellence in Abruzzo about sculpture, ceramics and jewelry.”

The exhibit aims to keep the memory of the earthquake alive and to remember the commitment to rebuild the old town of L’Aquila.
