500-year-old ‘Italian Nostradamus’ prediction says the world is about to end
By Natalie Keegan
Could the end of the world be looming?
According to a prophecy from the “Italian Nostradamus,” Armageddon is just around the corner.
It all comes down to the snow that has been hitting Italian resort town Salento for the last two days.
Philosopher Matteo Tafuri, who lived between 1492 and 1582, warned that two consecutive days of snow in the town would lead to the apocalypse.
The region is known for its mild climate but has been left blanketed by icy falls of late.
Tafuri predicted: “Salento of palm trees and mild south wind, snowy Salento but never after the touch.
“Two days of snow, two flashes in the sky, I know the world ends, but I do not yearn.”
This week snow has blanketed some parts of southern Italy – leading some superstitious observers to believe Tafuri’s predictions will soon come true.
