San Giuseppe Cafasso @ The Gallows Circle in Torino IT

San Giuseppe Cafasso / Rondo Della Forca Torino, Italy © Vincenzo Aiosa

Giuseppe Cafasso dedicated his life in consoling, taking confession and often brought  sigars from  those scheduled to be executed. The inscription at the base reads “Here on gallows circle lays the imposing figure of the Saint Protector of the hanged to remind us that human justice needs to walk alongside Christian Charity “. He also helped the families of the poor souls.
