(4.6/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Santa Maria in Trivio is a church in Rome. It is dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, and is located on Piazza dei Crociferi in rione Trevi. It is near the Fountain of Trevi.In Mariano Vasi's 19th-century guidebook, the church is referred to as Santa Maria a Trevi. According to tradition, the church was founded by the Byzantine general Belisarius in the 6th century. Allegedly, he found the church to expiate for deposing Pope Saint Silverius in 537. Previously the church had been known as Santa Maria in Fornica. This was recorded in an 11th-century inscription on the wall of the church.In 1571 the church was given to the Order of the Crociferi. Between 1573 and 1575 the architect Giacomo del Duca rebuilt the church, designing e.g. the innovative pediment above the entrance door.The crucifix in the chapel was decorated by Giovanni Francesco Bolognese. The altarpiece of St Camillo de Lellis was painted by Gasparo Serenari. The main altarpiece was painted by Bartolommeo Morelli. Other altarpieces in side altars were by the studio of Palma il Giovane, Luigi Scaramuccia, and Pietro Perugino. The ceiling was painted by Antonio Gherardi.

  • Church of Santa Maria in Trivio is located literally around the corner from the Trevi Fountain, but tourist attention he deprived. It is a small one-nave Church, neatly integrated into a more modern building. Inside is a dazzling Baroque.

  • It's nice to escape from the tourist flows and relax from the hustle and bustle in the Christian OASIS-Church of Santa Maria in Trivio near the Trevi Fountain. Among the artists and sculptors, who opened a shrine, familiar names we haven't found, but that's not important. The atmosphere is very intimate. Is beautifully decorated on the theme of the set of stories from the life of the Virgin.

  • The area rich in books and things to make them anonymous, most of it is hard to Miss mingling with the buildings around. There was no need to spend a lot of time, and so, as with so many other churches, enter and dwell for a few minutes, allowed us to appreciate it better (in fact, if you don't have pointed out we'd never walked ... fortunate to have someone who can also give these unknown). Carina and especially is really there, at 1 minute from trevi fountain. just take a walk around.
