|Santa Chiara a Villa York|
|English name:||St Clare at the Villa York|
|Dedication:||Clare of Assisi|
Santa Chiara a Villa York is a deconsecrated church in the grounds of the Villa York, in the Gianocolense district and west of the Via Casaletto.
The district, known at the Casal Marcello, used to belong to the Poor Clares of San Cosimato (hence the church dedication). In 1647 it was purchased by Zenobio Baldinotti who built a villa here, and also a small church on the site of a mediaeval one that had been dedicated to St Agatha.
The church was designed by Pietro Paolo Drei, and is a diminutive rectangular edifice with a bell turret on one corner. This latter has a square onion dome which looks rather German.
The church has been deconsecrated for years, is dilapidated and has lost its exterior decoration. Inside, apparently some stucco work survives.
