Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, Metropolitan Archbishop of Naples, blessed the “Totem for Peace” by the sculptor Mario Molinari, situated in front of the Town Hall of San Sebastiano al Vesuvio.

The impressive ceremony took place in the presence of the Mayor of San Sebastiano al Vesuvio Giuseppe Capasso, of Mrs Pia Molinari, of the President of Fondazione Mediterraneo Michele Capasso and of civil, military and religious authorities.

“It is a significant and symbolically important moment – Cardinal Sepe said – because this symbol of peace, from this town in the heart of Vesuvius National Park, is starting its journey to the Holy Land, where it will be realized in the Holy Site of Baptism with the volcanic stones produced here ".

The importance of the “Totem for Peace” was stressed during the religious celebrations presided over by Cardinal Sepe for the Franciscan Mission, in the presence of Franciscan Friars and a delegation from Assisi.
