Muslims are behind this, but Italy has a long tradition of native-born anti-clerical violence, especially in the 18th and 19th century.

Remember, everyone in Italy follows the Church, one half with a candle, the other half with a club!

I think landmarks like the Duomos of Milan and Florence, Saint Peter's Basilica, St. Mark's in Venice, etc. etc., are universally recognized in Italy as a prime cultural heritage. My old boss in Italy (God rest his soul) was a longtime Trotskyite who told me that if he ever retired, he'd spend his days sitting atop the Duomo with a machine gun, waiting for the first grafitti writer to approach it with a spray paint can.
