Catholic and Muslim inmates dance together for the Pope at the Rebibbia prison

Rome, Vatican City

Flash mob in Italian jail pays tribute to Pope Francis - Video flash mob:

Female detainees in Rome's Rebibbia penitentiary dedicated a flash mob to Pope Francis. Under the slogan "Pope is Pop", the women performed a zumba-style routine of spins, funky steps and arm swings to "Pope is Pop", a song written about the pontiff by Italian composer Igor Nogarotto. Some 50 women of all kinds of nationalities - Albanian, American, Armenian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Brazilian, Canadian, Chilean, Filipino, Italian, Liberian, Nigerian, South American, Tanzanian - and especially of different religion Catholic, Orthodox, Muslim, Buddhist (and atheist) dance together for the Pope, in the first flash mob history in an Italian prison

"I am not religious" said Igor Nogarotto, "but this pope has an amazing charisma. He is humble and close to the people and he doesn't conform to stereotype"

"This Pope is of all of us and with all of us" said a muslim inmate

Inmates are united in a demonstration to achieve a Pope, a sign that the peaceful coexistence of different ethnic groups and different religious faith not a utopia, but it can be realized and this flash mob is the the first concrete sign that this can happen, in the spirit of what professes Pope Francis, both from the pulpit of St. Peter and in his speeches in his travels around the world, as happened in the recent trip to the United States and Cuba.

Flash mob "POPPERS " Piazza San Pietro, Vatican City

Rome 2015, year of Jubilee

POPE IS POP: "Starting a revolution"

The Poppers movement is a group that originates from the spontaneous aggregation of people who wish to participate in the flash mobs we organize: this adhesion occurs both via social networks and directly on the road

No restrictions of any kind: neither geographical nor cultural, religious, social class, age, sexual orientation... it includes company executives and songwriters... because the goal of the project is to be together, to achieve human contact outside the "plastic" web ("face to face" instead of "face to Facebook") and create a community on the road, overcoming any fundamentalism, and creating together events that convey "contagious positivity", in full "Franciscan spirit", through POP aggregators such as Music and Dance

In the POPE IS POP group we find people of various nationalities: American, Congolese, Russian, French, Cuban, Italian... there are some gay members, and there are representatives of religions other than Catholic: all this is possible because the "POPE is POP" project is not "necessarily Catholic": what we have in common is the admiration for Pope Francis as a PERSON, for his humbleness, his charisma, his humor, his straightforwardness, his simplicity, his message that embraces and binds different cultures, far beyond his institutional role

Unlike other purists groups & projects, and catholic fundamentalists, we are not fans of just any Pope: we are only fans of THIS Pope! The author of "POPE is POP" Igor Nogarotto said: "Since the time of St. Francis of Assisi we have not encountered such a strong, sensitive and charismatic personality" and "I would never have written "POPE is POP" for Pope Ratzinger" and "This Pope is realizing the opening of the church that so many of us have waited for"



"POPE IS POP" is the name of the flash mob for Pope Francis going mainstream in Rome! Inspired by his charisma (in the year of Jubilee) thousands of people spread his message by dancing from the Vatican all the way to Piazza di Spagna, flocking through the underground and the shops, and gathering in the streets to create a "face to face" (rather than "face to facebook") community. And following the spirit of Franciscan solidarity, after the flash mob taking place in the Viale Beethoven post office the POPE IS POP group collectively chips in to help an elderly pensioner pay her electricity bill
