It all started when he first appeared on the balcony of Saint Peter's Basilica. He said, in Italian, that he came from "dalla fine del mondo" which literally translated becomes "from the end of the world". The correct form should have been "dall'altra parte del mondo" i.e. "from the other side of the world", in my humble opinion.
