  • Short Summary

    Benito Mussolini arrives at the Vatican for meeting with Pope Pius XI.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Rome. H. H. The Pope & Mussolini meet - and set the seal on their work of restoring religious peace in Italy."

    Rome, Italy.

    Cars and cavalry men travel through crowd lined passage on large square in Rome. A fountain is playing in the background. The men on horseback are wearing plumed hats.

    Benito Mussolini climbs out of the car. He is wearing a very ostentatious military uniform and a hat with feathers on it.

    Men in odd (probably Vatican) costume lead Il Duce down a cloister. Several other men in uniform are with him, as are several Catholic priests. The party come out of a doorway and down steps.

    See version 2 of this story for more shots of Mussolini's journey to the Vatican.
