Earthquake damage in Padua

I was saddened to hear that the Basilica di sant'Antonio was damaged in yesterday's quake as well:

We were outside Urbino last week when the previous one hit (200km away, on the 20th) and were awoken with a loud noise at 4:00 AM.

Any other news from the Padua side about this week's earthquake?

Unfortunately some old building as Sant'Antonio Basilica suffered some damages, luckily Cappella degli Scrovegni seems to have been spared.

Three square metres of fresco fell from the ceiling of one of the cupolas of the Basilica of St Anthony.

No, it is not closed and it will be opened for June 13rd celebrations.

The damages are limited to some frescoes, in order to let the pilgrims visit safely the Saint's Arc a protection structure has been built inside the Basilica, here is a video: …gelocal.it/foto-e-video/terremoto-un-tunnel…
