The Italian telecommunications company Telecom Italia SpA has signed an agreement with the Vatican to build a new fiber-optic network for the Holy See. The new infrastructure should replace the old one, which cannot fully meet the requirements of the digital age.

The Vatican, which does not hide its ambitions to maintain its influence on the minds of all Catholics of the world, intends to keep up with the time. Already in 2008, Pope Benedict XVI said that the leadership of the Catholic Church should actively work in the Internet in order to promote their views with maximum efficiency. As a result, a significant part of the Vatican's correspondence is already conducted through the Internet.
