However, as Albrizzi explains himself, he just produced the cross but originally the design of the cross was made by his teacher, the Sculptor Antonio Vedele. "The cross was made by me, but it was drawn by my teacher, Antonio Veldele, for whom I worked until 1978. I am grateful for everything he had taught me, the teacher who created the cross of Pope Francis."
