Word is that Obama was so cusious to know what the Guerriero di Capestrano is that the Premier of Italy–Silvio Berlusconi took the statue from it’s home in Capestrano to a place in L’Aquila. The Guerriero (warrior) of Capestrano dates back to many years before Christ and also symbolizes Abruzzo and it’s strength it put up agains the mighty ancient Romans.
