This Italian-language interview at IlCittadinoOnline.it just came to my attention.

“I’m not afraid,” he tells the interviewer, describing the vandalism as an act of “intimidation.”
“They picked the wrong man” to intimidate, he says.

Posting in a hurry from the road today…
Just catching up on your take on this tragic story…what type of person/persons would do such a terrible thing?
