  • When I was watching the Roman Forum from Thor de Conti Street, I thought that I would visit the place of the gate because there was a façade of the church of Santi Quirico et Julita along the road and the door opening. However, because the mass of the Sunday was done at that time, there was a priest who was wearing a red law suit in front of the main altar and the appearance that the congregation shone to the nave which shines in the illumination of the one nave when seeing through the glass window of the inside door without progressing ahead from there and was exactly in the middle of mass. I went outside so as not to make a sound, and looked up at the façade and went to visit Augustus ' Roman. It was built around the 6th century and has been repaired several times until the eighteenth century, and the bell tower is built in Romanesque style. There was a quiet in the back alley.

  • Interesting little church within the Monti district, immediately behind the holes. Small and very old, not particularly rich in works of art, houses the Museum of the crib and has a selection of paintings which suggest multimedia artwork ante-litteram.

  • The Church has undergone in the course of many of those interventions and alterations to be distorted. You think the Bell Tower now is subsumed within the adjacent building (Hotel Forum). Rome offers much better

  • A very pretty little church in the middle of nowhere. We stumbled upon it when walking some side streets on our way to the Quirnale Hill from the Forum. Near the main alter on the right side is a door. It leads to the Museo Presepi (Museum of Nativity Scenes). It's a lovely display and it's free (they suggest making a donation). The museum is very nice. Frankly, I liked it better than the Christmas Time only display at Santa Maria del Popolo, which was rather pricey.
  • Not particularly special
  • Church SS Quirico and Giulitta, via Tor de Conti, Ward Monti, Rome, I open it in front of this church, which today has no name, but incorporated in the name of the Via Tor de Conti, was called Macello de Conti, and was the place name of the wide in front of the church , named after the macellum et banchum slaughterhouses of the De' Conti family, which was closed in 1392. The church is dedicated to mother and son martyred in the 4th century, at the time of Diocletian, in Tarso in Cilicia. The church, originally dedicated to Saints Stephen and Lorenzo, dates back to the 6th century, as evidenced, during the excavations of 1930, by a headstone dedicated to the two saints made by Pope Vigilio, 537-555: the headstone, dated 1584 and today posted on the right wall of the gallery, it recalls the ancient epigraph that was destroyed during the restoration work of 1605. The dedication to Ss. Quirico and Giulitta first appeared in the Einsiedeln's Late 8th Century Anonymous Route. The church also had an opposite orientation to the current one: in practice where today there is the facade, once there was the apse. In 1118 the interior was remade in Gothic forms with ogival arches and the beautiful bell tower was built with trifore sprees by Pope Pasquale II, originally placed on the front of the church, while today, following the displacement of the facade, stands on the southeast side building, where the current apse is located. From the square base stand out 3 floors marked by trifore, of which the first two on pillars, the last on columns, made from bare marbles, and capitals with crutches. Adjective frames with laths, alternating with saw teeth and marble medallions, divide the regular brick curtain. In the bell cell is preserved a bell from 1721, the work of the brothers Angelo and Felice Casini. In 1475 Pope Sisto IV donated a new portal to the church, the work of Baccio Pontelli, but the works carried out in 1584 at the behest of Cardinal Alessandro de' Medici and Pope Paul V Borghese changed the orientation of the church, as mentioned above, adapting it to the new so that the portal was placed in the ancient apse. Other restorations were carried out in the seventeenth century but a new makeover took place between 1728 and 1734 i.e. a few years after the church was assigned by Pope Innocent XII to the Dominicans, when raguzzini created the new facade. The interior is a single aisle: in the vault is depicted the Glory of the Ss.Quirico and Giulitta, the work of Pietro Gagliardi; Also notable is the baroque altar major with an impressive newsagent of the seventeenth century and the monument to Gregorio Maria Terenzi of Canovian school. From the corridor to the right of the apse or from the Museum of the Presepio (the entrance of which is at the 31st street of Our Lady of the Mountains we descend to the level of the High Medieval Church, where you can observe two small absidi with figures of saints, dating from one to the 9th century and the other 11th century; attached to the foundation of the facade a square well indicates the place where the ancient main altar stood. The adjacent Hotel Forum corresponds to the ancient convent, erected in 1750 by the architect G. Valvassori: it seems that the artist did not want any compensation except 15 annual masses celebrated by the Dominicans by the suffrage of his soul.

  • The Church almost hidden from the hotel, whose building once belonged to her, it is one of many, beautiful Catholic places of worship in the city. The Church lives thanks to the activities of the Franciscan friars that the hold up.
