The Good Old Days in the Vatican

Bring back the scarlet damask and elegant ferraiolo is all I have to say.


  1. No. That is the Sala del Concistoro, which today is draped in elegant champagner damask. Since the tenure of Archbishop Paolo De Nicolò as reggente della Prefettura della Casa Pontificia the chambers of the Appartamento Nobile Pontificio has gradually regained much again of the nobility of the pre-montinian status. Msgr. De Nicolò let the horrendous brown-beige dusty montinian wallpapers beeing removed and replaced again with finest damask available in Italan manufactures. So today the papal appartments appear again elegant and noble, appropiate for the house of Peter.

  2. I'm going to hold my breath.
