Bring Back the Mandatory Ferraiolo for Papal Audiences


It brought a certain elegance to the meeting. 

"7. The use of the red watered-silk cloak ("ferraiuolo") is no longer obligatory for Papal Audiences and ceremonies held in the presence of the Holy Father. Its use is optional in other cases also, but should always be restricted to circumstances of special solemnity."

-Ut Sive Sollicite, 1969
