Visuals: On a space background, a drawing of the St. Peter's Square with "TV" on the left and the earth fade in. While the earth slowly gets closer, a big C appears to go left of the words "TV". In front is "Centro Televisivo Vaticano" in Copperplate Gothic zooming out to below the logo. A golden circle that comes from behind goes inside the C. The earth spins to Europe, which then sparkles to get taken out to reveal the show name.

Variant: A closing version exists, which the logo plays in reverse. But after the Earth spins back to Africa. The logo flies out.

Technique: Computer animation.

Audio: A dreamy theme with a whoosh after the fading of the logo.
