"Church/ Chiesa di S.Bartolomeo dei Bergamaschi (Ss. Bartolomeo e Alessandro dei Bergamaschi), Rome" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Friday 29th April 2011
Built in 1562 in connection with Hospital “Dei Pazzarelli”, it was originally called after Santa Maria della Pietà. In 1725 it was given the current name and was renewed by Carlo De Dominicis.
Starting from 1725 the church and annexed construction became a seat of "national" confraternity of people from Bergamo. In 1731-1735 a general reconstruction took place, the project was by G.Valvassori. The aspect of the church is simple as outside, as inside.
Before 1725 the church and a building were occupied by the Confraternity and a Hospital of S.Maria della Pieta', specialized in curing of mental diseases, that moved here in 1575 and built a church of S.Maria della Pieta'. In the end, the hospital was transferred and adjoined to the Hospital of St Spirit in Sassia.
The simple facade is completed by an undulate triangular gable. The interior has a nave with three chapels on each side while the hall, roofed by vaults, has frescoes painted by an anonymous artist from C.XIX.
