Description Extended Information
 
RIO GRPM01 Fiat Campagnola with Pope John Paul II (1:43 Scale) "Dear young people, you well know how concerned I am about peace in the world. The spiral of violence, of terrorism and war provokes, even in our days, hatred and death."
- Pope John Paul II's appeal for world peace, May 2, 2003

Pope John Paul II was riding in a Fiat Campagnola when an attempt was made on his life in 1981 by Mehmet Ali Agca, a Turkish gunman who may have been working for the Eastern Bloc. Today, the "Popemobile" has replaced the sedia gestatoria, which has the same purpose as the Fiat: to make the Pope visible to all the pilgrims during his entry and exit from events but offer the Pontiff better protection. Sold Out!
