San Giovanni dei Fiorentini

San Giovanni dei Fiorentini

San Giovanni dei Fiorentini (English: Saint John of the Florentines) is the national church of Florence in the Italian city of Rome.

History

Pope Leo X initiated an architectural completion in 1518 for a new church to be built in place of the old Saint Pantaleo. The winning architect went by the name of Sansovino but there were complications and construction slowly ground to a halt. Many different people tried to finish the church tower over two centuries, and it was finally completed in 1734.[1]
