Holy See/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.4 Social security frameworks

Every person working for the Holy See or in the Vatican City State is protected by the Social Security System, called Fondo Assistenza Sanitaria, which covers health care and social protection. 

There is no specific legislation for artists. However, John Paul II's 2000 Letter to Artists contains a statement of principle on the relationship between the Church and artists. See http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/letters/documents/hf_jp-ii_let_23041999_artists_en.html

See also comparative information provided in the Compendium "Themes!" section under "Status of Artists".
