It is famous for its involvement in criminal news during the assassination attempt on Pope Giovanni Paolo II by the Turkish terrorist Mehmet Ali Ağca. The pontiff’s frequent admissions to the polyclinic over the years led to the naming of the apartment on the tenth floor as the third Vatican. Today, for this reason, there is an imposing 5-meter-high marble statue of the pope in front of the hospital entrance. Specifically, installed in 2009, the statue depicts Giovanni Paolo II with a cross clasped. During his stays, he used to appear at the window of the tenth-floor apartment reserved for him to recite the Sunday Angelus and bless the faithful.
