  Chiesa di San Firenze

La Chiesa di San Firenze was constructed in the latter half of the 17th century and the beginning of he the 18th century and was commissioned by the Oratorian Fathers. The Baroque fašade of the building (its current fašade) was finally added in 1775. The left flank of the building was a chapel dedicated to St. Philip Neri. The right flank was supposed to be the church of San Firenze, but this was then downgraded to an oratory and, when the two buildings were joined, the entire complex was referred to, erroneously, as Chiesa di San Firenze. Today, most of the building is used as a courts.
