Throughout history, many people have tried to predict the end of the world.
So far, no one has been successful because we’re still here. One philosopher who tried his hand at predicting the apocalypse was Italian philosopher Matteo Tafuri. Tafuri lived in the 16th century and was also an astrologer who was known as quite the character in his day.
Warning that two days of snow in the Italian town of Salento would lead to the end of the world, he wrote, “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.” Tafuri’s prediction was made more than 500 years ago, and since then, it has not snowed twice in a row in Salento…until now.
Incredible pictures from Salento show its beaches completely covered in snow, including the cacti that live in this typically mild climate.
It’s easy to see why someone in the 16th century would consider this impossible because it almost looks too crazy to be true today!
