White smoke [ Animated GIF ]

fumataWe're waiting. Again the process of electing a new pope captures the attention of Christians and non-Christians.

Everything is ready for that moment of joy in a simple smoky chimney announces the agreement of the heads that have this mission: Choosing the spiritual leader of more than 2000 million faithful.

Black smoke is called (o fumata nera en italiano) to the column of black colored smoke coming out of the Sistine Chapel at the end of a round Caucus voting when not reaching the 2/3 needed to elect a Pope. Traditionally produced such burning smoke voting ballots with wet straw inconclusive. The smoke-blanca (o fumata bianca), on the contrary, means that there was a successful vote and that a new Pope. After finishing the fumata, appears on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica, protodiácono Cardinal Habemus Papam who announces and introduces the new pontiff. (W)
