Luca's world: the glorious antique mitre...

Just glorious (!) and it's a crying shame we don't see more mitres like this anymore.
These two treasures, of inestimable value, belong to a private collection (Luca, our friend, is the owner). Both belonged to the famous Cardinal Siri of Genova (see his arms on the gold one).
Magnificent to now see these mitres in use again, at long last (thanks Luca and Bishop Oliveri!).
