Church/ Chiesa dei Crociferi (Santa Maria in Trivio) - Madonna del Pozzo, Rome

Originally it was an Oratory of S.Maria in Trivio (Trivio = three streets crossing in the square in front of it) built by Belisarius in the 6th century, so called St. Mary of the Three Crossroads. It belonged to not existing anymore. In 1571 the church was given to the Order of the Crociferi who reconstructed it in 1575 with the help of G.Della Porta e.g. the innovative pediment above the entrance door.

Santa Maria in Trivio/ Church of St. Mary (To the left of Trevi Fountain) is a church in Rome. It is dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, and is located on Piazza dei Crociferi in rione Trevi. It boasts a fine example of 16th century Italian facade work. Note that all the windows are false. The ceiling frescoes inside the church are by Antonio Gherardi (1644-1702). Over the years, the word Trivio has been amended to Trevi. This is where the famed Trevi Fountain gets its name. This very small church sits behind the famed Trevi Fountain on the left as you face the fountain. The singular travertine façade is rich of mannerist hints in the use of decorations; in addition, there are several fake windows. The interior embodies a single nave with four lateral chapels. The church’s vault is rich of golden stuccos, decorated with important paintings by Antonio Gherardi.
