Celli denies Wikileaks: "We are technological at the Vatican ..." - Vatican Insider

So, Your Excellency, it is not true therefore that the Vatican is a bit antiquated with regards to technology?
 
«A certain image wants the Vatican as a closed world, or even "antiquated" as you mentioned. Reality is quite different, because even if rather small, the state employs state-of-the-art technologies in all the fields required. An example might suffice: the extension of solar panels from which the Vatican derives the energy it needs. In the field of communications, computers - all types - have long since replaced typewriters, and I do not think there is, proportionately, such a large extent and use of the Internet as in the Vatican». 


According to Wikileaks dispatches however, Father Lombardi was the only one with a Blackberry... ...

«At times we face, slightly fictional realities. Father Lombardi uses his "Blackberry" and, above all uses his art to communicate well. I would say that especially in this sense he is at the forefront. For the rest I would say there is good and crowded company».

Wikileaks also speaks of technophobe Cardinals who do not understand modern media. Only a few, we read in the dispatches, have an email. Is that so? 

«I personally know of cardinals and bishops who use new technologies with great ease. Some have given a strong boost also at the ministry level. The e-mail addresses of senior prelates have become increasingly numerous, and sometimes also appear in the Vatican telephone directory. The same internal Holy See communications now travel by computer».
