SI GIAMPAOLO Lomi ay isang pamusong Italyanong bihasa at kilalang direktor na kamakailan ay muling bumisita sa ating bansa upang dalawin ang kanyang kaibigan na si former First Lady Imelda Marcos. Nagkita kami sa Shangri-La Makati at nagkumustahan, nagkuwentuhan kung saan siya natuloy at kumusta ang pananaw niya sa mga Pilipino. Dahil siya ay isang Italyano, naitanong ko rin kung ano ang paningin tungkol kay Pope Francis dahil nataong nadalaw sa ating bansa.
ABOUT THE POPE
How do you find the new Pope? Pope Francis?
“The new Pope, ah… hahahaha! I don’t know, it’s difficult to say. At the moment that he became Pope, everything was fantastic. But, we must understand that he’s different and he’s the one the world need. The church is more than 2000 years, to send that way of expression you know; the rights, the theology, the distance of the pope from other human beings.”
“In Vatican, they have their own state, they have their own trial, unless they have been invited somebody for a crime. Meaning, they have their autonomy. Ah, they have their own government. Pope is the King.”
The pope is also considered the king of Rome before?
“Yeah, before. Up to Pious IX, until 1870 I think, when Italy became a kingdom and there’s the Royal Family. But, before they were fighting with the armies of the church.”
