Long Description:
Placed on the right side of the main door there is a plaque that reads:



"Fatta erigere dai Gesuiti, a partire dal 1623, su disegno di Girolamo Rainaldi. Il maestoso interno, a navata unica, riprende lo schema della chiesa del Gesù di Roma, con ricca decorazione in stucco. La facciata è rimasta incompiuta così come la parte absidale e la cupola. L'attuale abside è di Vincenzo Vannini (1840). All'interno si conserva una Madonna col bambino dello scultore Giuseppe Mazza. La chiesa, restaurata nel 1988, è ora adibita ad Aula Magna dell'Università. "

The church was restored in 1988, is now used as the Aula Magna of the University."
