The window of the Gammarelli clerical tailor shop in Rome. Three sizes of cassocks for the future pope are displayed in the window (along with the Winter Mozzetta, restored to use by Pope Benedict XVI).  Shortly before the start of the conclave (Tuesday 12 March) the garments will be transported to the Room of Tears, an antechamber of the Sistine Chapel, in readiness for the new Pope.
