Roman Catholic cardinals have hit out over alleged plans to rent out a property next to St Peter’s Basilica to the multi-million pound, and world-wide fast food chains; McDonalds.
In a statement to an Italian local newspaper, Cardinal Sgreccia has said: “[It’s] a business decision that, moreover, ignores the culinary traditions of the Roman restaurant”.
However, Cardinal Domenico Calcagno, President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic, has so far refused to scrap the deal, claiming that it is legally valid without “anything negative”.
Is it appropriate to open a McDonalds adjacent to the Vatican? Does it ignore the ‘traditions’ of the Roman restaurant or is the move an effective business move to increase revenue?
