Crowd of curious people in courtyard of the old palace. Reporters climb into the Protestant preacher's rooms by a ladder through the window. The Minister conferring with reporters. Desk where evangelist worked, with Bible quotes on wall behind. Room for worship. Electric light above bricked up door. Basket with food in it being hauled up to window for pastor. CU decree issued by Court which ordered the door to be bricked in. CU landlady in doorway. More shots crowd. Visitors climbing into evangelist's room. CU Italian book - "Storia della Chiesa".

NB: newspaper article on file explains this bizarre story - it seems landlady bricked up door when renovating building, preacher appealed to Ministry of Fine Art to build another door but they denied the request because it was a listed building. Preacher is seen protesting against this decision.
