Principessa Marconi: baptized by Cardinal Pacelli...


Imagine having been born in 1930 and having been baptized by the Cardinal Secretary of State, Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli, future Pius XII?

This woman had that honor: meet Elettra Marconi. Born in Civitavecchia, the port of Rome, she was baptized in the same palace in which she was born in on the Borgo Odescalchi. Today this palace is a school where kids learn to cook. Yt got a tour earlier this year and sometime the photos will be posted.

Pio XII: santo subito!
