    Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres, making it one-eighth the size of New York’s Central Park. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head. The Vatican mints its own euros, prints its own stamps, issues passports and license plates, operates media outlets and has its own flag and anthem. One government function it lacks: taxation. Museum admission fees, stamp and souvenir sales, and contributions generate the Vatican’s revenue. St. Peter’s Basilica sits atop a city of the dead, including its namesake’s tomb. A Roman necropolis stood on Vatican Hill in pagan times. When a great fire leveled much of Rome in A.D. 64, Emperor Nero, se...

The coins and notes will feature an up-to-date profile of Pope John Paul II - who is 81 and in the 24th year of his papacy. VOICE OVER 0002 The Vatican state has joined 12 European countries in switching to the new European currency, the euro. 0010 The papal state used the Italian lire from the beginning of the Italian Republic - just after the Second World War. 0018 But, like Italy, it converted to the euro on January 1st 2002. 0023 The walled city has adapted quickly to trading in the new money. 0027 From the end of next month, it will have its own specially minted euro coins and notes - carrying the image of Pope John Paul the second. 0036 At this post office on St Peter's Square the stamps are now printed with both euro and lire prices. 0043 The Vatican has always had its own postal system - and produces stamps bearing images of the Pope, holy relics and religious icons. 0052 At this tourist centre, the prices of all books and religious souvenirs are now marked in euros - and people are quickly adapting. 0101 And in St Peters Square, there is even a place for people to discard their soon to be useless lire coins. 0109 People throw coins towards this Christmas nativity scene - the coins are then collected and donated to charity.

Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres, making it one-eighth the size of New York’s Central Park. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head. The Vatican mints its own euros, prints its own stamps, issues passports and license plates, operates media outlets and has its own flag and anthem. One government function it lacks: taxation. Museum admission fees, stamp and souvenir sales, and contributions generate the Vatican’s revenue. St. Peter’s Basilica sits atop a city of the dead, including its namesake’s tomb. A Roman necropolis stood on Vatican Hill in pagan times. When a great fire leveled much of Rome in A.D. 64, Emperor Nero, seeking to shift blame from himself, accused the Christians of starting the blaze. He executed them by burning them at the stake, tearing them apart with wild beasts and crucifying them. Among those crucified was St. Peter—disciple of Jesus Christ, leader of the Apostles and the first bishop of Rome—who was supposedly buried in a shallow grave on Vatican Hill. By the fourth century and official recognition of the Christian religion in Rome, Emperor Constantine began construction of the original basilica atop the ancient burial ground with what was believed to be the tomb of St. Peter at its center. The present basilica, built starting in the 1500s, sits over a maze of catacombs and St. Peter’s suspected grave. For nearly 60 years in the 1800s and 1900s, popes refused to leave the Vatican. Popes ruled over a collection of sovereign Papal States throughout central Italy until the country was unified in 1870. The new secular government had seized all the land of the Papal States with the exception of the small patch of the Vatican, and a cold war of sorts then broke out between the church and the Italian government. Popes refused to recognize the authority of the Kingdom of Italy, and the Vatican remained beyond Italian national control. Pope Pius IX proclaimed himself a “prisoner of the Vatican,” and for almost 60 years popes refused to leave the Vatican and submit to the authority of the Italian government. When Italian troops were present in St. Peter’s Square, popes even refused to give blessings or appear from the balcony overlooking the public space. At several times during the Vatican’s history, popes escaped through a secret passageway. In 1277, a half-mile-long elevated covered passageway, the Passetto di Borgo, was constructed to link the Vatican with the fortified Castel Sant’Angelo on the banks of the Tiber River. It served as an escape route for popes, most notably in 1527 when it likely saved the life of Pope Clement VII during the sack of Rome. As the forces of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V rampaged through the city and murdered priests and nuns, the Swiss Guard held back the enemy long enough to allow Clement to safely reach the Castel Sant’Angelo, although 147 of the pope’s forces lost their lives in the battle. http://www.history.com/news/10-things-you-may-not-know-about-the-vatican CREDITS: Frontline SNAP PBS https://soundcloud.com/

SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "It's usual that when a Pope, and it has already happened in the past, when a Pope reaches his 80th birthday stamps are issued. This happened when Pope Paul VI turned 80 and so it's not something entirely new. This is an important moment of anybody's life, even more, naturally, in a Pope's life. This is clear. The real innovation is that the stamps are issued together with Poland." SUPER CAPTION: Pierpaolo Francini, head of the Vatican Philatelic Office SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "They are particular stamps because they are printed through the method of copper engraving, so they are created by engraving and not by photograph."
