Followers of Islam look for new space for worship and community

3/6/2013

The Islamic community of Varese [a community in Northern Italy] has outgrown it’s meeting space in downtown Verese. New plans include possible spaces in other districts with parking lots. The then Mayor in the early 90s would not allow the center to be called a mosque but rather a community center. The space has become too small for some 3,000 faithful who live in surrounding regions. The current mayor explains that no decisions have been made about where to move the center.
