Useful Info

Vatican City

Following the fall of the Papal States and the growth of the movement for unity in Italy, the relationship between the Catholic Church and the Italian State was peacefully ratified with the signing, by Pope Pius XI and Benito Mussolini, of the Lateran Treaty on February, 1929.

Following the Corcordat, the Vatican became an independent, sovereign state, less than half a square kilometre, the smallest state in existence. The Pope is the temporal ruler, a power he delegates to his Secretary of State. The Vatican is surrounded by a wall built by different Popes between 1550 and 1640. As an autonomous state, the Vatican has its own Governor, appointed by the Pope, its own legislature, executive and judiciary. The state also has its own postage-stamps, currency, radio station, newspaper (L’Osservatore Romano), security guards, police force and Swiss Guards.
