Rome will have a new luxury mall this fall. The problem is that this new space is located two minutes from St. Peter's Square and in a Vatican building.

The Vatican Mall website explains that the center will have 57 stores of the best clothing, footwear, jewelry, Italian and international cosmetics.

In addition, there will be several structures dedicated to restoration, spaces to organize events and exhibitions, an art gallery to promote works of art by modern and contemporary artists and a parking lot with capacity for 1000 cars.

According to Italian media, the project has the support of Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, who is also president of Caritas Internationalis and could be one of the candidates to replace Pope Francis.

On the Vatican Mall website, a section is dedicated to charity that explains that its approach "embodies the spirit of building a bridge with others, with concrete and constant support for humanitarian and health organizations and particular attention to social problems."
