  • The Church has a great decorated interior, it has beautiful plaster statues that show the prophets and other personalities from the old testament. The roof is really great with large paintings. A beautiful painting by Giacinto Brandi, glorification of the Virgin with the four evangelists. On the left side of the Church is the chapel dedicated to St. Thomas of Villanova, St. Joseph and our Lady of divine help. On the right side there are chapels dedicated to the crucifix, St. Nicholas of Tolentino and St. Anne. Among them, two funeral monuments: the first dedicated to Peter and Francis Bolognetti (Francesco Cavallini 1681), the second from Mario Bolognetti (Francesco april), examples of the most characteristic of the Baroque funerary sculpture. The Church has a single ship with three chapels on each side. It measures 27 metres in length and about 15 metres in width.

  • Discalced Augustinians are an order of mendicant friars founded in Naples at the end of the 16th century. The brothers are inspired by the rule of Saint Augustine Bishop of Hippo, one of the oldest codes of conduct of monastic communities. The waiver to footwear, proclaimed very clearly in the title of the order, aims to make tangible the concepts of humility and Penance of the original rule. Over time however the use of going barefoot was abandoned. The arms of the order shows a flaming heart pierced by an arrow over an open book. The acronym O.A.D. follows the Latin name: Ordo Augustinensium Discalceatorum ". In 1615 the order came into possession of a plot between the current Via del Corso and Via del Babuino, on which he built a small boarding school for seminarians and a church dedicated to the Holy names of Jesus and Mary ". Thus, on drawings of the architect Carlo Rainaldi, the current building featuring a sober façade in travertine and brick, divided by four large Corinthian pilasters with very elevated and crowned by a triangular tympanum. Above the entrance door, in turn surmounted by a lunette, you open a rectangular window. On the central part of the entablature stands in touted the dedication to "IESV MARIAE". The Interior is Baroque style impresses with its wealth of polychrome marble, white stucco and gilding. Stands out above all the large white mottled black marble pilasters of the presbytery and the red with white veins, also of the high altar. The complex of the altar and chancel, by the same Carlo Rainaldi, is one of the best examples of Roman Baroque; by virtue of its arched shape plastically seems to come almost meeting his faithful who observe it from the nave. To appreciate the imaginative scene above the altar, with lovely stucco angels arranged in symmetrical position on the arches of the eardrum. The two large statues on either side of the altar, representing Saint John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangelist (the one with the open book) are works of the seventeenth century Sienese sculptor Giuseppe Mazzuoli. The fabric in the center of the vault, depicting the Glory of the Virgin Mary is by Giacinto Brandi, painter active in Rome in the 17th century. The same artist is due the canvas on the altar, having as its subject Mary crowned by Jesus. On the walls there are three large chapels on each side, interspersed with four large funerary monuments, which are also decorated with profusion of columns and statues (the latter probably due to students of Gian Lorenzo Bernini). Are buried here representatives of wealthy family Church's major outsourcers Bolognetti,. Watch the funeral monument of typically Baroque on the back wall to the left of the main entrance, where lie the mortal remains of a certain Monsignor Camillo del Corno, benefactor of the Augustinian order: between two chubby little angels dance a grisly skeleton holding an hourglass, indicating that for the August personage is time fatal. Above the scene is the family crest of the deceased, in fact a small Horn with a string. On the back of the right wall, behind the first confessional, opens a small modern environment where is buried Between Aloisius (Italianized to Luigi) m. Chmel, Augustinian monk Slovak village-born barefoot on the border with Poland and for several years a student of theology in the seminary next to this church. Despite serious illness and premature death in 1939 just 26 years old, was for all a model of Christian piety and fortitude, as we read the plaque on the wall. His remains were transferred to this church in the years ' 70. The process of beatification of brother Luigi is ongoing.
