    The tomb of Pope Pius VIII, who briefly reigned from 1829 to 1830. He was liked by the Romans, apparently (according to Wiki anyway) because: “Being, at that time, head of the Roman State, he remained popular for decades for removing the so-called cancelletti (grids) from the taverns, which Leo XII had ordered to be put there to hinder the consumption of wine unless accompanied by a meal”.

    Which it’s a thing we could be doing with again, given the artificial and ridiculously onerous restrictions imposed on having a simple pint (or 6) in these times. At least on this side of the Pond.
