The cross is one of many created out of drift wood by a carpenter from the Italian island of Lampedusa. Francesco Tuccio collected the driftwood from the wrecked boats of refugees escaping from Eritrea and Somalia who drowned off the coast of Lampedusa and made simple crosses which he offered as a symbol of hope.
