I was going to say "only in Rome" but that would run the risk of turning the combox into a version of Private Eye's "Pedants Corner". Enjoy!

A cherub with a papal tiara ...

Police on normal duty looking like actors in a World War II film ...

A lampshade dedicated to Blessed Pope Pius IX ...

Really chic scaffolding covers ...

Heresy-sensitive security cameras ...

An anticlerical revolutionary whose tomb is less attractive than the biscuit named after him ...
