Santa Maria della Provvidenza ai Due Colli is a later 20th century public chapel at Via Badesi 31, which is in a suburban locality called Due Colli. This is part of the Borghesiana suburban district.

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

History Edit

The neighbourhood arose from illegally sub-divided farmland which became an unplanned suburb in the Sixties. There was a lot of this sort of thing in the locality at the time. In response, the parish of Santa Maria della Fiducia opened several chapels-of-ease of which this is one.

Appearance Edit

The chapel is a shack in light grey concrete blocks with a flat roof, which is not easy to find. It is opposite the junction with Via Banari. Look for a green curlicued metal gate with a wooden cross standing in the little yard behind.

The chapel looks as if it was built by amateurs, and must be a candidate for the worst free-standing Catholic place of worship in Rome.

Liturgy Edit

Mass is celebrated on Saturdays at 18:00.
