The CALENDARIO ROMANO has different pictures in it and also contains generical informations about of the Vaticano State
CALENDARIO ROMANO aims to be an information tool aimed at the tourist public with the aim of giving general information on the state of the Vatican city.
Although information of a generic nature is in many cases ignored by those who visit Rome.
In virtue of the agreement of the Holy Sede (1982) at the Convention of November 16, 1972 on the protection of the worldís cultural and natural heritage, all of Vatican City, as well as the Holy Sedeís exterior territories in Rome, were written in the world heritage list. They were added equally, both for their individual worth and because they make up part of the historical city center.
Property with extraterritoriality privilege outside of Rome include the Palazzo Pontificio, the Villa Cybo and the Villa Barberini at Castelgandolfo, and the Supreme Pontiffís summer residence which covered a global area of 400 thousand meters squared and which came to join the new Broadcasting Center of Santa Maria di Galeria, which arose near Cesano18 km from Rome, following the agreement between the Holy Sede and Italy on October 8, 1951.
The words of the Pope, when not on a world pilgrimage or in his summer seat of Castel Gandolfo (from mid-July to the end of September) can be heard in Saint Peter’s Square every Sunday at the 12:00am Angelus.
The Pope appears from his private studioís window and blesses the faithful. The special benediction Urbi et Orbi is bestowed at Easter and Christmas.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the State for the tourist is the fact that the Vatican is a brimfull treasure chest of universally important works of art. These collections can be viewed for free every last Sunday of the month.
The principle collections are: the Egyptian Gregorian Museum, the Etruscan Gregorian Museum, the Chiaramonti Museum, the Pious-Clementine Museum, the Belvedere, the Animal Room, the Statue Gallery, the Bust Gallery, the Mask Room, the Room of the Muses, the Round Room, the Greek Cross Room, the Candelabra Gallery, the Tapestry Gallery, the Map Room, the Gallery of Saint Pious V, Saint Pious, V’s Room, the Sobieski Room, the Immaculate Conception Room, the Chiaroscuro Room, Pope Nicholas Vís Chapel, the Rafael Room, and the celebrated Sistine.

Skilled in the age-old tradition of minting their own coin, the Vatican also actually benefits from it. The money is only minted by the Instituto Poligrafico e Zecca of the State of Rome and has the same characteristics composition and nominal value as the corresponding money of the European Union.
The stamps, generally dedicated to art, culture and world issues, are renowned and researched by stamp collectors worldwide.
Telephone cards, of which the first run began in 1992, are also collector’s items.
Vatican City has two surveillance groups. The more noted Swiss Guard, founded in 1506 and composed of around one hundred men, their colorful uniforms are said to have been designed by Michelangelo. Consisting of a miniarmy at the service of the
Pope, their duties consist of defending his person, not to mention the State grounds and the entrance of the Apostolic Palace.
The second body is the much less well known Vatican Guard, their members wear a dark blue uniform.
Vatican City has had its own license plates since 1930. They are normally black on a white field, with the letters SCV and a number. Special red on white license plates are used for the Pope and for the Cardinals. Vatican plates go from SCV 1 until about SCV 100.
Vatican citizenship is not obtained by birth, but is given from time to time by the appropriate office.
No one can own private property within the Vatican. All of the territory and property is considered ìstato patrimonialeî of the Holy Sede.
There are numerous Papal diplomats scattered worldwide which are Vatican citizens, but not residents. Those that regularly reside in the Papal city amount to about 300 people!

This is perhaps the most complete pharmacy that exists in Rome. Here, in fact, you can find a great assortment of mostly foreign medicines not marketed in Italy.
Entrance is given to anyone with a medical prescription.
I hope that these brief notes could be of help. For additional information, check the official Vatican internet site or other sites easily found on the net.
