A Nostradamus-style prediction has gripped Italy after two days of snow in Salento

Matteo Tafuri, who lived between 1492 and 1582, warned centuries ago that two days of consecutive snow in the resort town of Salento would lead to Armageddon.

He said: “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.”

The diary was hidden in his room and only discovered recently by researchers, who also uncovered the ominous warning.

Snow has blanketed some parts of southern Italy this week and some superstitious observers now believe Tafuri’s predictions will soon come true.

It comes just days after tears were spotted emerging from the eyes of a painting of the Virgin Mary in Macedonia - a spectacle which has also been linked to the end of the world.

Worshippers spotted the teardrops and pointed them out to their priest

Witnesses said that the latest tears were first spotted on New Year’s Day - exactly a week before Orthodox Christmas which is celebrated on January 7.

Worshippers spotted the teardrops and pointed them out to their priest who has contacted Macedonian Orthodox Church officials asking them to confirm the miracle.

Risto Setinov, the president of the local church board, said: "When the priest finished his Sunday morning service, one believer noticed a few drops coming from the left eye of the Virgin.

"Father Boban took some wool and wiped it, smelt it and said it smelled of Holy myrrh.

"After that, a few more drops came down the face of the icon.

"We remained in the church all day and the drops kept appearing."
