Juncker says EU will rebuild Norcia cathedral destroyed by the earthquake in Italy

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Friday that the European Union will pay for the reconstruction of the cathedral in Norcia that was destroyed last month by one of a series of big recent earthquakes in central Italy, reported Italian news agency ANSA.

“European solidarity is a duty owed in front of all the damages that the earthquake caused in Italy, destroying cultural heritage,” added Juncker. “It’s an European issue, the EU will use money and give help to Italy.”
