On September 5, 1977, the religious and civilian community of Castelnuovo, was deeply shaken by the fire that flooded into the sixteenth-century cathedral sacred to the saints Peter and Paul. The wooden crucifix venerated as 'Black Christ' by many generations of faithful almost completely destroyed in the fire. Only a year later the icon returned, restored, in its place, and all Castelnuovo celebrated the return with a party.
