The precious necklace donated by Dolce and Gabbana to the cloistered nuns, disappeared. Is the Mystery revealed?

Everyone is talking about it .. But where is the truth?

  For sure the Mystery around this topic  is certainly big.

There is also a big confusion about what is happening in these last days in the town of Palma di Montechiaro, in the province of Agrigento, where the precious necklace donated by the Sicilian designers to the cloistered nuns, has disappeared.

The fact was reported by the protagonists of this fact, the cloistered sisters, who, according to “Leggo Magazine”, observed the gift received from Dolce and Gabbana taken away in the middle of the night, between 5 and 6 July, by a delegate of the bishop of Agrigento .

Who is the person that move the necklace without any authorisation?

The answer is the delegate of the bishop of Agrigento. But we don’t have his name and surname.

Behind the strange request of the delegate, to move the necklace, there would be unspecified “security reasons”.

The town councilor of Palma di Montechiaro, Salvatore Malluzzo, expressed a strong indignation: “If if the hypothesis of the necklace


Displacement is confirmed , as far as I am concerned, it represents an act of a unprecedented severity. The necklace, which was donated by the stylists Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to the “Madonna del Castello” on the occasion of the jewelry show on July 4th, must remain in our city and not in other places, without any doubt. There is no justification for this! “.
“For us “Madonna del Castello” represents an “untouchable treasure – coffer “and everything that belongs to her, should not be touched or should not be questioned. That is why I launch a strong appeal to Mgr. Francesco Montenegro: “give back the possession of the necklace to our community, in Palma di Montechiaro “, the city councilor continues, recalling how the rich heritage guarded by the “Madonna del Castello” has never been thefths before.

The archpriest of Palma di Montechiaro, Don Gaetano Montana, tries to clarify. As “Agrigentonotizie Magazine” reports, the religious declares: “To free those who are in the  ignorance, I remind you that the management of the monastery is the exclusive work of the bishop. The bishop is the only legal representative of the monastery and is the prior of the monastery. The bishop is teh one who must give an account of the management directly to the Vatican. The custody of all the assets of the monastery is the exclusive task of the bishop who decides how and where to keep the assets of the monastery.


The custody is a task of the Archdiocese, not of the monastery that owns it. The objet that was taken to be kept in safe, respecting the deed of gift. Despite the act, the series will not be taken to any ecclesiastical place. It will not be kept in Agrigento, it cannot be kept at the monastery. No ecclesiastical institution, not even our parishes take charge of it. From tonight (yesterday ed.), Find out who keeps it. Because such a shameful attack is not possible ”.

Despite the ecclesiastic rules governing donations, we are convinced that the Gift should remain with the “Madonna del Castello”.  If the reason for moving the gift is really security, we are sure that even the Monastery will be able to find a safe solution to keep the necklace.   What is certain is that we send all our closeness and support to the cloistered nuns, in the hope that everything will be resolved as soon as possible and that this mystery will be revealed.
