Albanian Art in the Vatican

The evening of 19 November in the Vatican, Pope Francis welcomed an Albanian audience of representatives of state and society, religious faiths in Albania, intellectuals, and artists. The audience for the National Hero of 500 years ago gathered in his honor, the savior of Christianity, Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg. After the audience with the Pope, well-known names from Albanian art and sports—Inva Mula, Genc Tukici, Dua Lipa, Ermal Meta, Ramë Lahaj, Lorik Canaj, among others—were together at a concert in the Eternal City.
