Among the many popes who held in their hands the fate of Rome, Sixtus V (1585-90) is indeed a special one.

 Talk:Pope Sixtus V - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sixtus died execrated by his own subjects; but posterity has recognized in him one of the greatest popes.
He was impulsive, obstinate, severe, and autocratic; but his mind was open to large ideas, and he threw himself into his undertakings with an energy and determination that often compelled success.
Looks like a pretty mainstream assessment to me. I wonder what Whig's personal assessment of Sixtus V's urbanisation schemes for Rome is, if you get my drift.

 Pope Sixtus V
Sixtus V, given name Felice Peretti, Roman Catholic Pope from 1585 to 1590, was born at Grottamara, in Ancona, on the 13th of December 1521.
Sixtus set no limit to his plans; and what he achieved in his short pontificate is almost incredible; the completion of the dome of St. Peter's; the loggia of Sixtus in the Lateran; the chapel of the Praesepe in Sta.
But Sixtus had no appreciation of antiquity: the columns of Trajan and Antoninus Pius were made to serve as pedestals for the statues of Saints Peter and Paul; the Minerva of the Capitol was converted into "Christian Rome"; the Septizonium of Severus was demolished for its building materials.

This coalition that the pope and Philip II, the King of Spain, put together was to fight the Turk, and to fight the Turk on the seas in the Mediterranean, and it led to the Battle of Lepanto in 1571, which was the great victory of the Christian fleet over the Ottoman fleet.
Sixtus interfered in the work that was done, had it published early or did work on it himself and did not do a good job, and it was out, and it was making the Church in one sense almost a laughing stock.

Jubilant, Felipe II and the prince petitioned the Franciscan Pope Sixtus V (1585-1590) to declare Fray Diego a saint.
Because of this, the congregation urged Sixtus V to announce Diego's elevation to the altars of the Church as St. Didacus.
Sixtus undoubtedly acted as expeditiously as he did due to his own identification with the principles Diego de Alcalá represented, especially in his earnestness for missionary activity to "rewin" the world, veneration of St. Mary, and disregard for personal comforts or aggrandizements.
