Having violated all protocol norms, Pope Francis visited a music disc store near the Pantheon.
His surprise visit was captured by one of the journalists accredited to the Holy See’s press service. The footage shows how the pontiff leaves the Stereosound outlet and gets into a low-budget snow-white Fiat 500. It is reported that Bergoglio spent about a quarter of an hour in the store.
As the owners of the store explained, Francis had been their client long before his election to the papal throne. He decided to visit old acquaintances to bless the outlet after the renovation, and in response to his generous gesture, they presented the pontiff with a disc with a recording of classical music.
