The “Gran Gala Berlin” (1826-41) is a luxurious papal carriage
Grand gala coach built in 1826 for Leo XIII Pecci (1878/1903) by Felice Eugeni. It was modified with new decorations by Gaetano Peroni in 1841. It is the most spectacular coach of the collection. It was used four times a year during important ceremonies. The last time it was seen through the streets of Rome was on September 8, 1870, when Pius IX went to S. Maria del Popolo. A few days later the Papal States ceased to exist, following the breach of Porta Pia on 20 September, and the coach was never ever used again.
