09/2012 – Donation for the rievocation of the “Miracle of the 8th September 1944”

On the 8th of September, the anniversary of the liberation of the inhabitants of Massaciuccoli from the Nazi occupation occurs. The local population, in fact, was locked up in the Frantoio di Quiesa awaiting his death, but at dawn on 8 September he managed “miraculously” to save himself even after the bombing of Pisa that put the Germans on the run.

Since then, every year on this date, to commemorate the extraordinary event, a mass is celebrated inside the mill at 18.00 which always attracts a large number of participants, reflecting the intensity with which this event is still today remembered.

On the facade of the building will be placed the beautiful terracotta image of the ” Virgin on the throne ” (in the picture), which the artist  Beppe Domenici  created in the early 50s in his furnace ” Ceramica Viareggio ” This work was donated from the family fulfilling a wish of the father who wanted to be placed almost as an ex-voto in this place that the people read as miraculous.
