Santa Giuliana is a 19th century public dependent chapel of the parish of San Pancrazio, and is located at Via Alessandro Algardi 19 in the Gianicolense quarter, not far from the parish church. Picture of the chapel on Wikimedia Commons here.

The patron saint is Juliana Falconieri (1270-1341), a Florentine noblewoman who founded the first community of Servite tertiary nuns and whose uncle was one of the founders of the Servite friars.

ExteriorEdit

It is a simple little rectangular building in vaguely neo-Romanesque style, rendered in pale purplish-pink. The windows in the main body of the building are round-headed lancets. There are no windows or other decorations on the façade, except a statue of Our Lady in a round-headed niche coloured blue over the entrance. The entrance porch projects, has an arched opening and also a rather odd-looking broken triangular pediment which flanks the statue niche. There is a three-sided apse.

InteriorEdit

The apse contains a fresco of the Deposition of Our Lord from the Cross, and also a sculpture of the Annunciation. There is also a set of the Stations of the Cross in glazed pottery. These art-works are by Lorenzo Ferri.
