She will oversees the Vatican Museums and other Vatican State services such as the mint and stamp office and the motor pool.

Petrinie, 52, from Rome was with the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, which carries out missionary work.

Francis has focused on women in his personnel decisions in recent months.

Earlier in the year he made theologian Nathalie Becquart the first woman in the history of the Catholic Church to serve as an under-secretary in the Synod of Bishops.

Then, in August, Francis named Sister Alessandra Smerilli as interim Secretary of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, which focusses on migration and poverty issues.

She was also named as a delegate of the Vatican Covid-19 Commission.
