Alberto moved to his house?

Moved because the decaying corpse made living in his residence unbearable?

Moved because "he" was in charge of Alberto's residence - landlord, responsible for rent, etc?

Hmm... Trying to rephrase correctly...

Anything to do with being able to anticipate what's going to happen? Something to do with having good judgement?

Legal system relevant? Is Alberto a judge? lawyer? Is "he" (can "he" be given a name?) a judge? lawyer?

Did "he" and Alberto know each other? Were they (I'm trying to start a new LTPF list here [if there isn't one for interpersonal relationships already]) family? spouses? in a relationship? lovers? friends? coworkers? boss and employee? client and contractor? members of the same social group/club/organization? neighbors? acquaintances? total strangers?

Did "he" (mind if we call him "Pope"? 'course not.) live in the Vatican when he died? at any time during his life? Yes to both. (please excuse this obvious line of questioning...just a little confused and trying to eliminate some possibilities!) No worries. Mind my "for svv of history".

Is the historical event just that he was a Pope and he died? or is it something more than that?

Did Alberto move because of his death? because of something that happened following his death? Did Alberto know that he would be moving following Pope's death, even before Pope died?

Is the historical event just that he was a Pope and he died? That's part of it, but at this point I should probably flag a FA about the use of "historical". If you can't sort out its nature within a few posts, don't worry, I'll give it to you. or is it something more than that? Yes.

Did Alberto move because of his death? Indirectly. because of something that happened following his death? Agh. Tough one. Yes-ish to yope. Did Alberto know that he would be moving following Pope's death, even before Pope died? Yes.

Did Pope know Alberto? know of Alberto? No to both or irrelevant.

Is this a fictional story Yes... about a fictional Pope's death? ..but no to this bit. Shoes of the Fisherman? Angels and Demons? Haven't read either... assume "no" as an answer if the question is "is this puzzle inspired by X?", and "don't know" if the question is "is any part of X's plot relevant for this puzzle?".

Is it based on an urban legend? A work of literature? No to both, but explore. If Alberto hadn't moved, would he have died? Possibly. Is Alberto's name relevant? No. Is it relevant that Alberto is a Hispanic name? Would another hispanic name work? Would Albert? Jack? What's in a name? The form I chose ("Alberto" rather than "Albert", for example) is a clue, but it is not the hispanic variant (although it is identical to it). The exact name is irrelevant. Oh, and "Alberto" is actually Germanic in origin.

***** RECAP *****

21st century. The Pope dies. As a consequence, Catholic Alberto feels somehow threatened/in danger and moves (as in relocates) away from the European city he was living in.

Why?

The last two-three question posts contain some smart insights.

Is specifically Alberto in danger? or a particular group to which Alberto belongs? any Catholic in that town?
Is the danger real? or just an imagination of Alberto?
Are other people involved in this danger?
Is Alberto's town in a mainly Catholic country? mainly Protestant? mainly Orthodox? mainly Muslim? mainly atheist?
Is it the capital of a country?
Do we have to find out the exact town?
Is something about the new Pope relevant?
Would Alberto have been in the same danger when the Pope would not have died but resigned from office?
Is any of the following triggering the danger in a relevant way: the burial of the Pope? the intermediary rule of the Apostolic Chamberlain? the Conclave? the election of the new Pope? the mere fact that soon there will be a different Pope?
Is there something more to be found out about the Pope's death? when he died? (in a Holy Year, possibly?) where he died? what the reason of his death was?
Was Alberto involved in some (possibly illegal?) business that will haven to end when a new Pope takes office in Rome?
Alberto's profession relevant?
Is Alberto a relative of the old Pope? of the new Pope?

Was Alberto justified in feeling threatened when Pope died? Did any other Catholics living in the same city move away for the same reasons? If not, was it because they weren't in danger? Or because they didn't realise they were?

Prophecies relevant? Alberto predicts that after the Pope dies something will endanger him, correct? Does he think it will endanger anyone else? Other Catholics in the city? Everyone in the city?

Can Alberto see into the future? Does he think he can? Or would anyone be able to make this prediction if they had enough information?

Does this take place in the future? In an alternate reality? Is the Pope Benedict XVI?

Does the danger Alberto thinks he is in arise from whoever is going to be the next Pope? Does the next Pope know him?

Does the danger Alberto thinks he is in arise from whoever is going to be the next Pope? Yes, indirectly. Does the next Pope know him? Irrelevant.

Kalira:
Is Alberto Italian? Yes. Living in Rome? Yes. Vatican City? No.

Is he actually one of the Catholic clergy? A cardinal? Does he work for the Catholic church in any capacity? Barring that, is his occupation relevant? No to all.

Some very good progress there.

Is there a prophecy that after Benedict XVI dies or leaves his position as Pope, the city of Rome will be destroyed, or something similar?

Oh wait, that sounds familiar... Isn't there somebody who prophesied a series of popes until the end of the world? or something like that? Nostradamus, maybe? Is Benedict XVI the last one on that list?

******* SPOILER *******

Exactly so -- it was St. Malachy. More details here.

We will see what happens when Benedict XVI dies :-)
