I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Pope John Paul II sculpture criticised for resembling Benito Mussolini - Telegraph

They fixed this up - a bit.
The article is old.

Pope John Paul II sculpture criticised for resembling Benito Mussolini - Telegraph:


The highly abstract sculpture, which portrays John Paul in an ecclesiastical robe with his arms outstretched in a gesture of welcome, was unveiled this week in the large piazza outside Rome's main railway station, Termini.
Gianni Alemanno, the mayor of Rome, described the work as "modern and evocative".
With its bald head and beetle brow, the statue, which now dominates one of Rome's biggest squares, bears distinctly Churchillian features, although Romans were struck more by its resemblance to Benito Mussolini.
"How could they have given such a kind pope the head of a fascist?" said 71-year-old Antonio Lamonica. His wife called it "ugly, really ugly." Antonio Stampete, a Rome city councillor, said: "Installing this outside Rome's most important travel hub, where thousands of Italian and foreign tourists arrive every day, is embarrassing".
