The Immaculate Conception in San Gregorio d’Ippona, in the Vibonese area, “weeps”: but the liquid leaking from the statue’s eyes is not blood. The first results of the analyzes rule it out
The mayor, Pasquale Farfaglia, after having had the seals affixed to the area, asked for new examinations, to investigate further in order to trace the true origin of the at least curious phenomenon. Farfaglia consulted the Curia and Arpacal (the regional environmental protection agency) to have the ruby red substance re-analyzed.
To notice the ruby red “tears” of the Madonna, a statue of 50 centimeters in height, was the caregiver of the elderly owner, a 99-year-old woman, in the garden of the private house where the statue is placed. At the moment no hypothesis is excluded, not even that it may have been a stunt.
