Santa Maria della Consolazione a Piazza Ottavilla is a 20th century convent church at Piazza Ottavilla 1 in the Gianicolense district, near the church of San Pancrazio.

The dedication is to the Blessed Virgin Mary under her title of "Our Lady of Consolation".

HistoryEdit

This is the church of the Generalate of the Discalced Augustinian friars, set up here in the early 20th century after the order lost its previous headquarters at Gesù e Maria in 1873.

It is not clear why it was given the status of a church. It has no external profile, and no external pastoral responsibilities either. Perhaps it was originally intended to function as a subsidiary church to the parish church of San Pancrazio when that parish was set up in 1931.

AppearanceEdit

It is part of a large apartment block on the north side of the piazza. The entrance is marked by a large white fascia, but there is no indication externally of any church here.
