A climate cultist with the group Latest Generation tried to vandalize the walls of the Palazzo Vecchio but Florence mayor Dario Nardella wouldn’t have it.
In addition to Europe, Latest Generation has been involved in a number of acts of vandalism in northern Italy too. After he and other vandals who showed up were taken into custody, Nardella issued a statement on Twitter saying.
The attack on art, culture and beauty, which are helpless in the face of violence and which are born for the good of humanity can never justify the battle for a cause, even the most communal.
Bravo! Nardella, rightly, called the green vandals barbarians.
