(ANSA) – TARANTO, 16 SEPT – Two angels pouring spaghetti from a colander onto the head of the Madonna: this is the poster of the Egofestival, the food and wine event that will take place in Taranto from 22 to 24 September next. Raffaella Spina, coordinator for the province of Taranto of the National Autonomous Association and VAT Numbers, did not like the poster.
“To get to ridicule the sacred image of the Madonna – he accuses – on a poster to advertise a food and wine event for profit, improperly using the Taranto mussels brand, in a city like Taranto that has a history and a religious culture right towards the Madonna, it means having lost your mind “. “A colander – adds Spina – that pours spaghetti on the head of the Madonna with the child in her arms, ready to serve at the table with a placemat, offends not only Taranto, but the whole region. The author of the ‘ Madonna with Child ‘Bartolomeo Cavarozzi, known as Bartolomeo de’ Crescenzi “. “Whoever has the power to eliminate this blasphemous image from circulation and absolutely not to associate the event with Taranto – he concludes – should do it: the mayor, the bishop, the trade associations, as we are already doing”.
