The Fiat Campagnola was donated by Fiat to Pope John Paul II during his visit to Turin on the 13th of April, 1980. On May 12th 1980 the Campagnola was registered with plates SCV 1 and then mainly used for the official ceremonies in St Peter’s square. In fact John Paul II was on board this Campagnola when he was attacked. The car, in accordance with the Pope’s wishes, remained in service even after this dramatic episode, despite the misgivings of the security staff
