We all had the joy to pranzare in the presence of the Monsignor at a nice ristorante there in Venice. He shared lots of nice stories that we all enjoyed (he was ordained a priest by the future Pope Paul VI in 1956).
After I took this photo I told the Monsignor how much I liked his hat. I thanked him for it while describing it as being "bellissimo." Then, with a smile he looked up at me and said with a twinkle in his eye, "No, è elegante!"
