The Pope Utility Vehicle or P.U.V.


The Italian Civil Defense administration was given a specially designed Fiat Docato Panorama for Pope Benedict XVI to ride in while he tended to the earthquake stricken areas of Abruzzo.  The Fiat van is part of the fleet of cars that the Civil Defense uses for disaster relief efforts.

To me it looks like a Pope Utility Vehicle.  Inside the Fiat van are white leather sofas and the exterior is painted white with the livery of the Italian Civil Defence administration emblazoned on it.
