It wasn't the front gate of the embassy,
in via Veneto, but a secondary gate in
via Lucullo. It seems that the limousine
was too long, not too large.

He was going there to meet a huge catholic
community (Sant'Egidio community, based
in Trastevere, Rome). When the pope asked him
if he was going to meet that community later,
at the US embassy, he has been heard to say:
'Yes Sir'.
