The Byzantine rite of mass is very suggestive.

We have been passing by so many times.
It is a small, simple and unassuming church, very close to Via della Maddalena.
It was built in the 11th century on a pre-existing church dedicated to S. Maria della Pietà.
In 1196 Pope Celestine III restored it rededicating it with the name of San Salvatore alle Coppelle and having the bell tower built.
The first mention of this church dates back to some sources in 1195.
It is called 'alle coppelle (at the barrels) from the name of the wooden barrels to keep water (with a capacity of about 5 liters) made in this area until the sixteenth century.
The church underwent an extensive restoration in 1739 and at the same time the facade was rebuilt according to a project by Carlo De Dominicis.
The simple facade has a portal surmounted by a rectangular window. On the sides there are two portals surmounted by two framed roundels.
The interior with three naves has an iconastasis in the background decorated with the depiction of the "Last Supper".
It is almost always closed.
To visit it, you have to go on Sunday morning, between 10 and 11:30, when the church is open for the Sunday liturgy.
It is the church of the Romanian Community in Rome.
The Byzantine rite of mass is very suggestive.
Recommended.
