2016-01-24 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Saturday morning met with Francesco Paolo Tronca, the Special Commissioner for Rome.

He was appointed to the position by the central government after the resignation of the mayor, Ignazio Marino, on 31 October 2015.

Although this is the first official reception for Mr. Tronca in the Vatican, he has met Pope Francis three times previously: At the All Saint's Day Mass in the Verano Cemetery on 1 November; at the crowning of Mary in Piazza di Spagna on 8 December; and at the Te Deum in St. Peter's Basilica on 31 December.
