The design of the church belongs to Antonio Derizet, who created it in 1737 by order of the Confraternity of the St Name of Mary. The Confraternity was instituted as a thanksgiving for the victory over Turks at Vienna in 1683. Construction of this church caused demolishing of Chiesetta di S.Bernardo della Compagnia. It stands on a rectangular basement, overwhelmed with the purely decorative elements. Interior is on elliptical plan, decorated with the polychrome marbles. It has seven chapels; over the high altar is a venerated image of Virgin from the previous church (Roman school, 11th-12th century). Beside the church is a little construction with annexed oratory in neo-classic style by G.Valadier.
