  • It is rare for a church of the last century to be appreciated but in this case both the exterior and the interior have a certain value and invite to recollection

  • Let me start by saying that, for me, it is difficult to write about a place like this, you are bound by too many emotional ties. The Church of s. Roberto b., however, with modern and certainly not among the most celebrated of Rome, has a remarkable aesthetic interest even to the harmonious and monumental Romanesque-inspired architectural forms, the interesting mosaics and stained glass Windows, as well as internal. for the friendly churchyard. Well worth a visit.

  • I know that for the stuck up the Church representing the district par excellence is that of piazza Euclide, via Panama is kinda on the edge of Parioli. I always had the impression that the square, soul of the neighborhood was precisely this, at the junction of viale Parioli and via Panama Then it must be said that it was designed by the architect. Busiri Vici rationalist style, dominated by the presence of the Octagon, characteristic of the years ' 30, and dedicated (in fact) to a Jesuit Saint, just canonized. The most significant event of the last half century is that had the titulus Bergoglio precisely Jesuit, now ascended the throne as Pope. Inside I was immediately, visually impressed from dark who reigned and the coolness of the concrete elements left in plain sight.

  • Modern church in the heart of the city, architec Busiri Vici design...
  • Designed by architect Clemente Busiri Vici and open to worship in 1933, this church is a landmark in the Parioli district. The interior airs the Byzantine atmosphere with the large mosaic. Fun fact: the main altar was donated by the famous tenor Benjamin Gigli.

  • Historical and elegant church in the center six Parioli. The new parish priest is not very active, but the parish has many activities with various degraded realities such as favelas and convices. The church is a modern fascist-style structure with a marvellous dome set in blue Mosaic.
