The clerical "cape" in Rome...

When I was a kid my pastor was the famed American church musician, Msgr. R. J. Schuler, Ph.D. He was always known as an elegant man of great taste. During the winter months he often wore the cappa nigra (as seen here).

That is meant to be a red 'cape' for the likes of a cardinal.
