History

On April 16th 1631, Capuchin Friars came to live for the first time in Via Vittorio Veneto, 27. Nowdays, what remains of the structure built for them by the Barberini family, is only the church and the cemetery crypt, where the remains of the Capuchins were transported from the cemetery of the convent of San Bonaventura.

In 1925 the religious foundation stone was laid on a small area donated by the Municipality of Rome.

The old convent was indemaniato and then demolished , in order to make the new urban structure of the area. In the church , St. Felix of Cantalice, the Venerable Father Francis from Bergamo, the Servant of God Father Mariano from Turin are buried.
Also, the cells of St. Felice and St. Crispin of Viterbo are preserved in the convent. Precious works of art adorn the altars and choir.
