(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) VATICAN'S CHIEF SPOKESMAN, FEDERICO LOMBARDI, SAYING:
"To keep a piece of this Wall in the Vatican Gardens has a certain meaning, especially because it allows us to remember how the Church lived the reality of the division of Europe and, in particular, the division of the city of Berlin.

CHIEF OF THE VATICAN, SECRETARY OF THE POLISH DIOCESE IN ROME, PAWEL PTASZNIK, SAYING:
"He said that communism fell because its ideology was wrong. Then the Lord - thanks to His providence - is responsible for putting the right men in the right place at the right chance moment to change the face of this world. I am also referring to the many politicians who have contributed to this event."
