  • If the church of St. Bartholomews does not escape the sight of those who visit the Island of Tiberina, not so much can be said for the other temple of the Christian faith, the church of St. John Calibita, which hides inside the hospital structure of Fatebenefratelli. Built on a temple dedicated to Jupiter Licaonio, of which important traces have been found in recent times, the "favisse", a hypogeo deposit full of votive gifts. I am fascinated to contemplate the rich and harmonious set of marble decorations, stucco and frescoes with delicate chromatic nuances. Here are preserved the guile of the watchful monk, who rests in the peace of the church named after him.

  • The church is located on the foot of the lovely Fabricio bridge over the Tiber Island Nakasu. From the top of the bridge you can overlook the whole Church and the bell tower is impressive. The stone-paved bridge and the view of the church are very picturesque.

  • Is the Church that Fabricio bridge on the north side of the Tiber island. During a visit to the Church couldn't get closed. Diagonally in front of the Church, there are small gelato shops, delicious gelato shop!

  • There's some worry that this church is going "dark". The hospital website has a page for it, but information about access and liturgical events has been deleted and replaced with the simple message "Only open for liturgical events". But when? In 2016, there was Mass on Sundays at 11:00. There's a sinister rumour that repairs are needed, but the hospital has no intention of paying for them. Quietly closing the church down might be the result. Any info or gossip welcome.
  • There's nothing sadder than a closed church. This can also be reached from the inside of the FTB hospital, so it is also presumed to be available to those who need a moment of comfort or prayer. But nothing, this morning around 11 o'clock I could not enter, a lady let me out because "I was not part of the group" (which group??). "Open the Doors to Christ?" But these were closed.

  • The Church is a jewel of rare beauty. Too bad it's almost always closed.
