Description

La chiesa di Santa Maria Maddalena è una delle chiese di Roma, nel rione Colonna, che si affaccia sulla piazza omonima. Rappresenta uno dei pochi e dei più begli esempi dell'arte rococò in Roma. È la chiesa regionale degli abruzzesi residenti a Roma.StoriaNel 1586 la chiesa, costruita su una cappella del Trecento già proprietà dell'Arciconfraternita del Gonfalone, venne affidata a Camillo de Lellis che ne fece la sede centrale dell'ordine dei Camilliani. All'ordine e al suo convento fu assegnato l'intero isolato circostante (piazza della Maddalena, via del Collegio Capranica, via delle Colonnelle).Nel 1628 papa Urbano VIII autorizzava l'apertura, di fronte alla chiesa, di una nuova piazza, I lavori implicarono la demolizione ed il rifacimento delle case circostanti, lavori ai quali si deve, ancor oggi, l'effetto armonioso e compiuto della attuale piazza della Maddalena.Lavori di rifacimento interno della chiesa furono intrapresi già dal 1630, nel quadro di attività che interessavano l'intero complesso. I rifacimenti furono effettuati in vari lotti, destinati alle singole cappelle, e durarono a lungo: ancora nel 1695 si provvedeva a demolire case che erano appoggiate al fianco destro della chiesa. La fabbrica poté dirsi compiuta nel 1699, ma la consacrazione della nuova chiesa ebbe luogo soltanto il 4 maggio 1727.

Tips from the Net @ Bar della Maddalena

Count the money to the waiter. Money went missing - €50. They are thieves. Hit and miss with the food. Had lamb chops, grilled vegetables, scallopini, octopus and calamari. Food was lovely except for the calamari - was very sandy. Told the waiter and they just took the plate away. Didn't apologise, didn't offer any response, reimbursement or replacement at all. I suggested they taste it there and then. Didn't happen. Dessert: tiramisu was ok. The service was friendly but when we paid the bill the waiter came back and told us it was 50€ short. We don't drink alcohol, and my husband does not make mistakes, ever! They made a big fuss and the waiter told us he didn't even go inside with the money to make payment. He was away from the table for about 2mins and out of sight. There were 7 of us at the table. We were well aware that my husband had given €190 for a bill of €178. They forced us to pay the extra €50 and did not discount or refund the sand-filled meal we returned. In all of Europe we got warned about pickpockets and thieves and this is the first time we have had anything stolen in plain site. One of our other party had received an inflated and inaccurate bill the night before from a different restaurant. Not being accustomed to the pricing and service payments, he didn't realise they had overcharged him until after he had left. Such a shame for a lousy ending to what should have been a lovely balmy night with good company and good location. Definitely won't be returning or recommending. There are plenty of others to choose from. GooglePlace - August 2017
