Former Policeman: The Pope’s Disappeared Daughter (15) Buried Under a Castle in the Vatican | outside

Emanuela Orlandi is buried under Castel Sant’Angelo, a former police officer claimed in a letter to the OM in Rome. Forty years ago, the daughter of an aide to the pope disappeared without a trace.

In the cellars of Castel Sant’Angelo, the former mausoleum of the Roman emperor Hadrian, a few hundred meters from St. Peter’s, is a room of about twenty square meters with an armored door. “There may be human remains in that room, and those remains belong to Emanuela Orlandi,” former police officer Antonio Goglia wrote in an open letter to Stefano Luciani, the Rome prosecutor handling the case.

In mid-May, Italian justice opened another investigation into the disappearance of the “Vatican girl” Emanuela Orlandi, exactly 40 years ago this month, after the failure of two previous investigations. The Vatican itself had already launched an investigation into the mysterious case in January, for the first time. In this new case, the two prosecutors will finally work together.


Emanuela Orlandi went to music lessons in downtown Rome on June 22, 1983, but never returned. Since then, speculation has swirled about what happened to the 15-year-old daughter of an aide to the Pope and a citizen of the Vatican. Said to be the subject of an international conspiracy involving Pope John Paul II, the Polish trade union Solidarinosc, the Italian mafia and an American cardinal, others believe Orlandi has been used as leverage between two rival factions within the Vatican itself.

The fact remains that after forty years people still don’t know exactly what happened to the 15-year-old girl. Twice before, the Italian judiciary had been informed about Orlandi’s possible burial place, but both times nothing had been found. Reason why Emanuela’s older brother Pietro, who has been trying to find out the truth for forty years, is skeptical. “Unfortunately, I have read articles and theories presented as facts that only cause confusion.”
