The appellation of the church refers to the flooding of the Tiber, which caused severe problems in Rome until the embankments were built in the late 19th century. During floods, the water would lap at the houses in the area.
The church is first mentioned in the 12th century. It has been restored several times, and there are not many traces of its Medieval origins.
The columns are from various ancient buildings, but almost everything else is from the 19th century.
The mortal remains of St Vincent Pallotti are interred underneath the high altar.
The rooms of St Vincent, where he lived from 1846 until his death in 1850, have been turned into a museum.
The church is now within the Pallotine motherhouse.
