Rome, vandalism at Pantheon: eighteenth-century candelabra damaged


Rome, woman enters Pantheon and damages two candelabra dating back to 18th century. Stopped by carabinieri, she will be tried on summary judgment.

She entered the Pantheon in Rome and damaged, apparently for no reason, two wooden candelabra dating back to the 18th century. The perpetrator of the vandalism was an incensed 39-year-old woman, who was stopped by the Superintendence staff in charge of supervision and then arrested by carabinieri from the Piazza Farnese station for aggravated damage. She will be tried tomorrow on summary judgment.

The woman acted against two candelabras, almost three meters high: one was damaged, from the other some arms were detached. Authorities are now investigating the reasons for the act and the possibility that the woman may have had accomplices.
