Carrara: bishop condemns Immaculata displayed by Torart


The Bishop of Massa-Carrara, Giovanni Santucci, condemns the Immaculate Conception on display in Torart's exhibition spaces because it is considered blasphemous.

After causing controversy in the city for days, the already dubbed “Blasphemous Madonna” that contemporary art studio Torart displayed in its exhibition space in downtown Carrara has been stigmatized by the Bishop of Massa-Carrara, Giovanni Santucci.

The prelate told local newspaper Il Tirreno,“Art is not this, art is love of beauty. Where is art here? This is a publicity stunt. Unreasonable to give it further importance.” The Immaculata exhibited by Torart was deemed offensive because it was covered with a condom.

Torart, the studio specializing in sculpture that exhibited it, is known not only for its consistent quality exhibition work, but also because it worked on the reconstruction of the Triumphal Arch of the Temple of Bel in Palmyra, which was destroyed by Isis fundamentalists.
