Today we are at St. Nicola Cathedral, in Bari. We have been requested to mark our presence by the Politecnico to measure an exceptional event, the Miracle of the Sacred Thorn.
Traditionally, the blood stained thorn is expected to brighten up whenever the Good Friday coincides the Feast of Annunciation, like this year.
Our spectrometric and vision measurement systems are measuring the chromatic change in the relics.
Usually the occurrence of this prodigy is verified by a notary and a team of experts, like it was done in 1842, 1853, 1864, 1910, 1932, 2005. This year we are also here to verify this prodigy!
Stay tuned for the latest updates…Happy Easter!
