Hopefully they’ve checked to make sure the dye won’t harm the historic fountain. I mean the idea behind this is obviously a worthy and important one.

On the Feast Day of St. Catherine of Siena, Doctor of the Church (FYI). Blood of the martyrs, pray for us!

Roughly a decade ago, a vandal dumped red dye into the Trevi fountain. No harm was done, as the dye was not absorbed into the marble.

I would think authorities would have done some research into dyes after such an event, and certainly before using dye themselves.

The gesture to draw attention to the martyrs is admirable, I think.
