Pope Benedict XVI yesterday received the keys to a special tractor from Fiat’s head man, Sergio Marchionne.
The New Holland T7050 tractor is painted white and carries the Papal coat of arms.
It will be used to tow a huge platform – which accommodates His Holiness during his regular Wednesday general audiences in St Peter’s Square, the Vatican – into position.
