Politics of the Vatican City State

1922, St.Peter’s Square in Rome, at the dawn of a new era. On 6th February 1922, Achille Ratti, Archbishop of Milan, is elected Pope Pius XI. He addresses the faithful that have gathered on the square that is still Italian back then. But the most important change in the history of the Church takes place in January 1929. After almost 60 years of forced incorporation of the Papal States by Victor Emanuel II, now the Vatican City State is founded. On 11th February, the Lateran Treaty between the Kingdom of Italy, represented by Benito Mussolini and the Holy See, represented by the Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Gaspari, was signed.
