Marcello Cardinal Mimmi (1882 - 1961)

He was bishop of Crema from 1930 to 1933, archbishop of Bari-Canosa from 1933 to 1952, Archbishop of Naples from 1952 to 1958 and Cardinal-Bishop of Sabina-Poggio from 1958 to 1961. He was elevated to the cardinalate by Venerable Pius XII on January 12th, 1953.

Somewhere in Italy. This man apparently was a giant! And: Please, pretty please, bring back these buckled shoes! And the gold tassels! And the watered silk! And... EVERYTHING!

With the newly created Cardinal Montini in 1958.
