The medal for public gratitude that Rama donated to Cardinal Pietro Parol is the highest
Edi Rama is in the Vatican today, on the 30th anniversary of the restored relations with the Vatican.
In his speech, Edi Rama spoke about combinations of dates and anniversaries that culminate in these weeks, including the 150th anniversary of the birth of the great Albanian Franciscan Father Gjergj Fishta, the 300th anniversary of the birth of the so-called Albanian Pope.
But what intrigued us was the star cordon for Vatican Cardinal Pietro Parol.
The medal of public gratitude that took on a new shape with the cord and the star, used to be a coin. It may come as no surprise that even the prime minister has a hand in the design, but this is not officially confirmed.
From the time of Ahmet Zogu, medals ranked Albania in countries with a state image.
Rama is accompanied to the Vatican by his wife Linda Rama and young son Zaho.
