For which, at the time to build a new Church will take account of the environment in which it was going to fit: the square, the street, etc. One of the most significant examples of this new way of designing and building a church is represented by the Baroque church of San Carlo. The Church, dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo, Saint's name with the term "ai catinari", with clear reference to that area of Rome where there were many manufacturers of ... "Carol". Designed by architect maceratese Rosato Rosati, the religious building is built on the ruins of the small Romanesque church of San Biagio (12th century). Work began in 1612, proceed for eight years, until 1620. But it still won't end, because you still have to define the façade, the apse and the interior decorations. You will have to wait until the end of the century. While the consecration of the building and dedicated to San Carlo Borromeo will take place only in 1722, under the papacy of Pope Clement XII, the Florentine Lorenzo Corsini. When the new church was, in terms of size, the third Rome. Preceded only by St. Peter and St. Andrea della Valle (today, after St Peter and St Paul and St John Bosco, the Eur is the fifth). The façade in travertine and two orders, the Summit is bounded by a pediment. The bottom three gateways, while in the second order, above the Central opens a window flanked by two blind Windows. When designing the Interior-partly restored in 1861-Rosati made a variation to the original traditional Greek cross. Without reaching the proportions of the Latin cross, has stretched his arms on the major axis than minor axis. At the top, in the Centre of the transept in the wide, high dome is supported by four columns. In the four triangles of the Vault (timpani) are painted the cardinal virtues-prudence, justice, fortitude and Temperance-realized by the bolognese painter Domenico Zampieri called Domenichino. Many important other artworks, stored inside. Among the most significant a fresco of the great bolognese painter Guido Reni. Place in the apse, depicting s. Carlo. In the past it was visible on the façade. Beautiful even shovel on the high altar. It is one of the last works of Pietro (Bailey) from Cortona. Represents the sacred procession which leads into St. Charles nail. Finally, in the sacristy one can admire a bronze Crucifix Classicist sculptor Alessandro Algardi; and the passion of Christ by Giuseppe Cesari, known as il Cavalier D'arpino. The idea of the Rosati would influence the French architect Jacques Lemercier to design the Church of the Sorbonne in Paris. Made with two superimposed orders façade, instead of the traditional three. Finally, the Church of San Carlo deserves special attention because it is an original and significant example of the Roman Baroque.show original
