Italian club AS Roma released a new logo today, and who better to show it to than one of the most recognizable figures on the planet.
Prior to the Coppa Italia final this weekend, members of Roma and Lazio met with Pope Francis, and Roma president James Pallotta wisely used the opportunity to give their logo update more exposure.
Apparently, Roma isn’t the only Serie A team trying to get into Pope Francis’s good graces.
Juventus sent a delegation to meet with the Pope at the Vatican, led by manager Antonio Conte and captain Gianluigi Buffon. The Pope’s soccer collection is growing even bigger; the keeper presented him with a jersey signed by the entire team, as well as a replica of their Italian league trophy.
