National Church of Savoyards or Piedmont, rome, italy

Chiesa del Santissimo Sudario (SS.) Sudario/ National Church of the Savoyards is a "national" church of people from Piedmont dedicated to the relic of Savoy House: Shroud of Christ. The church was built in 1604 by C.d. Castellamonte and restored by C.Rainaldi in 1678. It has a simple facade, and late 19th century works by C.Maccari inside.

Originally the church and its hospice belonged to the French under the title of S.Luigi (St Louis), who in the end of the 15th century decided to move to their new seat near Piazza Navona named Chiesa di S.Luigi dei Francesi. In 1871-1946 Chiesa del Sudario was a court church of the House of Savoy.

The new façade was created by Carlo Rainaldi (1690). After the restoration in the 1800s, in 1871 the church was consecrated again and went under the patronage of the Royal House of Savoy. Today it is kept by the Cappellani Palatini. The small facade opens up with a portal surmounted by an arched tympanum sided by two portals. On top of the ledge there is a big window crowned by a tympanum bearing the Savoy’s coat of arms in the middle. The interior includes a unique nave with the vault frescoed by C. Maccari (1840-1919). In the bottom, on the high altar, is the painting “Gloria di Angeli con il Padre Eterno” and a canvas copy of the Sacred Shourd (sixteenth-century-work by Maria Francesca of Savoy).
