Costume Designer Carlo Poggioli Reveals Secrets from the Young Pope Set Plus, how he recreated the papal jewels.

HBO's The Young Pope is nothing if not a celebration of excess. The series chronicles the rise of the first American Pope, Lenny Belardo, alias Pius XIII, played by Jude Law, and the pontif's robes, jewels, and living quarters are nothing short of splendid. It should come as no surprise that Rome-based costume designer Carlo Poggioli works frequently in the Opera.
