  • with its narrow facade, at the corner with the off of Torre Argentina. Above the lintel an eardrum encloses the stucco statue of St. Francis attributed to Antonio Raggi. The Borrodilian-inspired interior.

  • Sticks out on largo Argentina, clearly visible in the passage, the elegant façade and full of movement, albeit squeezed between the two buildings that flank, late Baroque or Rococo style in his light. Notable among the two orders that make up the façade on top that opens with the broken pediment that welcomes the expressive stucco statue of St. Francis attributed to Antonio Raggi, the statue is framed in a large window surmounted by a pediment containing the bas-relief of an Angel; on top stands a cross with the symbol of the order, arms folded.

  • Wonderful Church dedicated to the Sante Stimmate of St. Francis. Until a couple of years ago, the headquarters of the youth vocational center of the Diocese of Rome, a place of encounter and fraternity for many young people who, thanks to the path of the X Commandments, have seen their lives transformed.
