Chiesa di S. Filippo Neri, Genoa

(4.8/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
San Filippo Neri is a Baroque church on via Lomellini in central Genoa. The order of the Oratory of Saint Philip Neri had arrived in Genoa in 1643, under the sponsorship of the Oratorian and Marchese Camillo Pallavicini who was born in Genoa. Originally housed in the church of San Pancrazio, by 1674 the order began a move to this new site and built their church and chapter house on the site of a former palace of the Lomellino family.The nearby building on via Brignole De Ferrari houses the chapter house for the Oratory of Philip Neri. Designed by the architect Giovanni Battista Montaldo, it was built during the same period as the church. It is not clear who designed the church.InteriorThe ornate interior decoration was begun in 1674. The quadratura and some of the gilded and stucco decoration were completed by 1706 by Antonio Maria Haffner, the brother of the Bolognese painter Enrico Haffner. The nave ceiling frescoes of the Glory of St Philip Neri were completed by 1714 by Marcantonio Franceschini, who also painted the cornices with Miracles and Life of the Saint.In the first chapel to the right are two statues of Mansuetude and Divine Love by Domenico Parodi, the son of Filippo Parodi. On the lateral walls are paintings by Giacomo Boni and Enrico Vaymer depicting Events in the life of St Francis of Sales.

  • The Baroque style is characterized by the richness and splendour of fresco and stucco decorations. The Church of San Filippo Neri along with many other churches of the historic centre of Genoa is a casket which contains priceless works of art and priceless sculptures and friezes. The research of the best marble coming to Genoa from Carrara and Lazio by sea. You should also visit the nearby oratory of the Lomellini, small chest of a very valuable baroque sculpture by Pierre Puget atre on the high altar. Genoa is surprising for its historic center which combines medieval, Renaissance and Baroque age in a valuable collection.

  • This church was a good find, rich marble and stucco inside is a treasure to visit if you want to discover Genoa. Very well preserved is a wonder not to be missed.

  • Beautiful baroque church uncrowded but better preserved. The decoration is full of precious marbles; beautiful marble works with red-red Levanto-and yellow-giallo di Siena-very Roman colours, sinuous lines. Original dark wooden furniture, gold stucco but well preserved is located in via Lomellini next to Philip's magnificent oratorio that is also worth a visit for the attractive Baroque supple feminine lines and the magnificent marble group of Pierre Puget at the altar.
