Further live Italian

That will be followed by coverage of the Holy Father's visit to the basilica of San Pietro in Ciel d'Oro. It is here that the relics of St. Augustine are kept! St. Augustine has been a great influence to Pope Benedict: his doctorate in theology is on Augustine, and he has regularly expressed the influence this great Church Doctor has had on his life and thought. The live Italian coverage will conclude around 2pm ET, with a closing ceremony from Pavia.
