Italian Senator Claudio Zin led the group. One woman was actually the first person to break the ice. 

"I brought you a drawing my niece did. She is 8  years old and she is a diabetic. It includes all the children of the world, asking for your blessing.” 

During the brief meeting, they talked about issues affecting Latin America, like poverty and violence. 

They were on their way to the Parliament, just moments before Italy elected its new president. They asked for some advice.

"I hope that it doesn't take a lot of time.”

Former Italian President Giorgio Napolitano resigned on January 14th. He has a good relationship with Pope Francis. The last time they met, the private meeting lasted roughly one hour and a half.
