The gate is closed but the building is visible through it.

I come accross this Bishop’s nest a bit by accident (wandering along streets of old city). I can’t get it, only take pictures.

It’s the house of current bishop Francesco Beschi. In the middle of XX century it hosted cardinal Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli who became the Pope – John XXIII – in 1958.

I found Pope’s chapel in S. Alessandro cathedral. In the same cathedral  in the undergrounds the other bishops of Bergamo are burried (photo below).
