The church is considered the last Baroque work in Rome. An oratory was built here under Leo X (1513-1521), and the church was built from 1766 to 1770 by the Sienese Archconfraternity for the Sienese colony in Rome. The architect was Paolo Posi.
Above the door you can see the coat-of-arms of Siena, and above that the she-wolf and the twins Romulus and Remus, a symbol of Rome.
