Church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza
The church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza was built by Borromini from 1642 through 1660. The church rises in the little courtyard of the Palazzo della Sapienza (where it gets its name from), home of the antique university of Rome, from Century XV until 1935. Very particular are the original multifoiled dome and the daring clerestory with a spiral cusp.

The church’s interior, due to the busy plan and the surge of the pilaster strips, continued from the dome into six segments, all in light colors, is even more surprising for the innovations in concepts and decorations, to the extent of forecasting the advent of Rococò. Not to be missed the magnificent canvas by Pietro da Cortona, representing "Sant'Ivo" and other splendid frescoes.
Corso del Rinascimento 40, Rome
The church is open only on Sundays from 9.00 to 12.00. Closed in July and August. Mass Schedule: Sunday: 11.00 (except on July and August).
