The Vatican Knows... (about the kidnapping of that young woman)

World Premiere of "The Vatican Knows (about the kidnapping of that young woman)," a new play by Mario Fratti.

A young girl's fantasies about being fathered by the Pope lead to a brutal kidnapping.

Fratti's play is inspired by a New York Times article of May 15, 2012 about the kidnapping of Emanuela Orlandi, daughter of an employee of the Vatican City State.

Clues to the crime have led investigators in many different directions and the unsolved case has become a mystery of particular fascination to Italians.
