A House of Saint Martha was founded in 1543 by St Ignatius of Loyola to rehabilitate women considered of poor morals, because they were adulterous or married women shamelessly living in public sin without fear of God or men Saint Martha is considered the patron saint of married women. The church became a monastery, and by 1560 was under the Augustinian order. The church was consecrated in 1696, with a reconstruction by Carlo Fontana. Deconsecrated by Napoleonic invasions, it presently functions as a cultural center.


The interior art has been mostly transferred. Some of the stucco and architectural decoration remains. The ceiling is frescoed by Baciccio.

  • Current location of "Open Restoration" project by the Higher Institute for Conservation and Restoration. You can visit the church and the restoration workshops thanks to the guidance of the highly prepared and extremely kind officials. A beautiful experience to make known an important work for our cultural heritage.
