Teaser: How many colours does power have? The sheen of gold, of material wealth, are only its most banal nuances. For Monsignor Mattei, the silver and blue of his honorable family's coat of arms are more substancial. His is an ancient family tracing its roots to Roman patrician aristocracy of more than ten centuries ago. Likewise important is the now certain report that the purple of his episcopal vestments will soon become garish cardinal red: the shadow of influence thrown by a scarlet cape may be rather wide.
Still other colors compose the picture Monsignor prefers: the almost corporeal black of darkness disturbed by candle flames, in meetings concerning which it is better to keep silent around plebeian, unworthy ears. And then, beloved white: at the same time virginal veil and shroud of death.
Sadly, white seems to have been a bad omen for the Holy Roman Church's fate, since only a few decades after its appearance next to the yellow on the banner of the Papal States, replacing the ancient amaranth, the glorious signs had to be lowered on the Eternal City, replaced by a prosaic tricolor.

Relations: He's travelling accompanied by his secretary Edmond Roncourt. He held a close correspondence with Arthur Edward Waite. He knew Countess Luisa Gigli Cervi de Robilant's husband and was willingly seeing him when he was in Italy. He knows lawyer and Senator Vegezzi well. He would like to have chef Guillot Savarin at his service. Some years ago Sir Charles Cowdery and his wife Johanna McEwans visited Rome during a Grand Tour of art and pleasure, on that occasion they met Monsignor Mattei and a friendship that they did not stop nurturing has developed between them. He has met Giovan Battista Borghese, part of the young Roman nobility, in the past.
