The Vatican's Hottest REAL Priests Are On Display In 2014 'Roman Priest Calendar'
While photographer Piero Pazzi's "Roman Priest Calendar" isn't serving up the salaciousness of the Orthodox Priest calendar, it does have one thing going for it:
Pazzi assures us his priests are real!
And they are GORGEOUS. So what's got these
sexy holy men stepping in front of Pazzi's lens?
According to The Local:
But the Venice-based photographer behind the calendar, Piero Pazzi, insists the portraits are purely intended to promote the Eternal City and inform visitors about the Vatican.
They are all genuine priests, usually snapped in Rome during Holy Week, he tells The Local. He also travels to Seville to capture clergymen during the Spanish city’s Holy Week procession.
“I meet most of them on the streets in Rome and ask to take their photos,” he says.
The priests do not supply their name but “most are happy to be photographed after I tell them the reason for the calendar,” adds Pazzi, who launched the calendar in 2003.
“I do the same in Seville. Yes, the men are good-looking, but it is just a product, a way for people to be better informed about the Vatican.”
Inform us, Pazzi!! Keep us informed all day, every day!!
You can order the calendar here, or if you happen to conveniently be strolling by the Vatican, drop off 10 Euros to one of the vendors and be on your merry way!
