Once upon a time there was a Madonna with eight stars…
A few years after the Madonna’s placement atop the mountain, a lightning bolt hit her crown of stars and one of them was lost.
It was decided to remake the star. The story goes that Sir Vincenzo and Sir Roberto climbed up to the top of the sculpture to recover one star in order to make its copy.
Giuseppe Banda modelled the new star that, once placed atop the Madonna, completed the crown once more.
After a short time, destiny had it that this new star was hit by another lightning bolt and this star too was lost.
