Pope Francis Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, during private audience at the Vatican, March 5, 2018.
On the Pope's desk there is a switch that operates a bell located in the room next to the library. It can be used to call the Holy Father's room aide or a collaborator.
From that moment it is possible to reopen the doors of the room to let in the following that accompanied the guest, as foreseen by the Vatican ceremonial.
