Messina's Madonna stands six metres high greeting visitors as they arrive in the beautiful curved harbour with the inscription: "Vos et ipsam civitatem benedicimus" The statue was unveiled on August 2nd 1934 and, thanks to Gugliemo Marconi, is fitted with a special device which allows it to be illuminated from the Vatican in Rome.
