Scala dei Turchi smeared, volunteers at work to remove the red dust. And in the end the cliff shines – Video

Technicians of the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage of Agrigento but also numerous volunteers are already at work to clean up, the white marl cliff of Scala dei Turchi, one of the most beautiful and evocative places in Sicily, smeared with red by some vandals. “The Sicilian Region – explains the president Nello Musumeci – it immediately took action, together with the Municipality, with its structures in the area, to secure the Scala dei Turchi and clean up the damaged area, after yesterday’s cowardly act of vandalism. From the Superintendence and Civil Protection of Agrigento I receive reassuring messages about the restoration of the cliff. The spilled red material is attributable to powdered iron oxide and fortunately this did not represent a big risk ”. The technicians of the Municipality of Realmonte, two officials of the Superintendency and numerous volunteers, who are vacuuming the dust, and then cleaning the area with the help of a pressure washer, went to the place early in the morning: “I thank them all – underlines Musumeci – for the generous act of civility and scrupulous responsibility demonstrated “.
