Vatican Telephone Service

The Telephone Service of the Vatican State is responsible for the study, installation and management of the telecommunications infrastructure of the Vatican. It has been run since 5th July 1948 by devout members of the religious order of the Society of St Paul (la Società S.Paolo), employs over 30 laymen, a few priests and numerous nuns (suore Pie Discepole del Divin Maestro) who, on account of their distinct qualities of seriousness, reserve and in-depth knowledge of foreign languages are employed as operators in the day-to-day running manual switchboard..
The Telephone Service is currently managed by Br. Andrea Mellini and has been governed in the past by Don Paolo Marzilli and  Don Salvatore Carolla, Don Lorenzo Manfredi and Brother Domenico Molino.
