The font where Vittorio De Marino was baptized on the 7th June 1863 can be seen on the left hand side of the altar of Santa Maria dell'Arco's Parish in Villaricca (Piazza Papa Giovanni XXIII). The marble tablet, placed near the baptismal font, was devoted to the memory of the Venerable Fr. Vittorio De Marino. The marble plaque commemorating him was located there in 1963, one-hundred years after his birth. The italian inscription reads as follows: "IN QUESTO SACRO FONTE / IL 7 GIUGNO 1863 / P. VITTORIO DE MARINO / BARNABITA / SERVO DI DIO / FU RIGENERATO ALLA GRAZIA / IN MEMORIA / 7 GIUGNO 1963 .
