The church of San Macuto is a church on Piazza di San Macuto in the Colonna rione of Rome, Italy. Located next to the Jesuit Collegio di San Roberto Bellarmino in the Palazzo Gabrielli-Borromeo, it is the only church in Italy dedicated to the Breton saint Malo.
First recorded in 1192, the church of San Macuto has had several owners at different times. In the second half of the 13th century it was dependent on San Marcello al Corso, then later it belonged to the Dominicans from the neighbouring Santa Maria sopra Minerva (confirmed by Niccolo III in 1279). In the year 1422 it was described as a parish church. Pope Leo X joined the parish with that of St. Peter's Basilica in 1516, giving it to the Fraternity of Bergamo in 1539.
The Bergamo monks changed the saint it was dedicated to from Bartholemew to Alexander of Bergamo and the church got a new façade around 1560. The façade was a project of the Ferraran architect Giovanni Alberto Galvani and it was partially reconstructed 1577−1585 to the design of Francesco da Volterra.

  • This is an enormous palazzo on Via del Seminario, which I passed on the way to the Pantheon. It is today a government building. There is an interesting monument to one side of the doorway.  more »

  • Great library in rome! But attention, the visit is only with invitation. Such a secret place, not for all the tourists
  • Important Palace at the service of the Chamber of Deputies of great interest. Suggestive the refectory room suitable for meetings and cultural and institutional studies.
