Italian businessman Marcello di Finizio is a small figure seen standing by a banner hanging on St. Peter's 130-meter-high (42-feet-high) dome as faithful gather in St. Peter's Square to attend Pope Benedict XVI's general audience, at the Vatican, Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012. Di Finizio eluded Vatican security Tuesday and scaled the dome of St. Peter's Basilica to protest against the Italian government and European Union policies. Officials said Wednesday that the man, who identified himself as the owner of a beach resort, refused appeals from government ministers offering to meet with him if he would come down.
