Carlo Chiarlo (November 4, 1881—January 21, 1964) was an Italian Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. He served as nuncio to several countries, mostly Latin American, and was elevated to the cardinalate in 1958.

Biography

Born in Pontremoli, Carlo Chiarlo studied at the seminary in Lucca and the Angelicum in Rome before being ordained to the priesthood on May 28, 1904. He then taught at the seminary and did pastoral work in Lucca until 1917. Chiarlo was secretary and later chargé d'affaires of the nunciature to Peru from 1917 to 1922, when he was named Auditor of the Polish nunciature. He was raised to the rank of Privy Chamberlain of His Holiness on May 26, 1918.

On October 12, 1928, Chiarlo was appointed Titular Archbishop of Amida by Pope Pius XI. He received his episcopal consecration on the following November 12 from Cardinal Pietro Gasparri, with Archbishop Giovanni Volpi and Bishop Theodor Kubina serving as co-consecrators, in the chapel of the Collegio Pio-Latinoamericano in Rome. He was named Nuncio to Bolivia the next day, on November 12. Chiarlo was later made Nuncio to Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Panama (January 7, 1932), and to simply Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama (December 19, 1933). Returning to Rome, he was charged with the special mission of assisting prisoners of World War II on December 3, 1941. Chiarlo, after becoming head of the pontifical mission to Germany in 1945, was appointed Nuncio to Brazil, where he would be a beloved figure[1], on March 19, 1946. From 1954 to 1958, Chiarlo was made a nuncio at the disposition of the Secretariat of State in the Roman Curia.

Pope John XXIII created him Cardinal Priest of S. Maria in Portico in the consistory of December 15, 1958. The Vatican diplomat lived long enough to only attend the first two sessions of the Second Vatican Council from 1962 to 1963, and serve as a cardinal elector in the 1963 papal conclave that selected Pope Paul VI.

He died in Lucca, at age 82, and is there buried in an urban cemetery.
