It was also called Chiesa dei SS.Claudio e Andrea dei Borgognoni. Starting from the 17th century the colony from Burgundy was concentrated in this zone, what the nearby street named after Burgundy (Via Borgognona) proves. They had a chapel and a hospice, founded by Francesco Henry in 1662. The present aspect of the church was given it by the French artists in the 18th century.
It is located in Piazza San Silvestro. The square itself was formed in the 30's of the 20th century as a consequence of destruction of a line of buildings, which separated it into two squares: little Piazza di S.Silvestro and another Piazza di S.Claudio itself.
