The name of Rome's central station, the "Stazione Termini", may be changed in memory of Pope John Paul II. City mayor, Walter Veltroni, announced that he had asked the state railways to consider this request, at an extraordinary meeting of the Rome city council held to pay homage to the memory of the late pope. Members of the Catholic, Jewish and Muslim communities were present at the meeting where the mayor recalled the great affection which Pope John Paul II had for the city. The pope was made an honorary citizen of Rome when he visited the Capitoline Hill on 31 October 2002.
