Overview

Thanks to the Swiss banker Meuricoffre, who lived in Naples from 1760 onwards, the Lutheran church in Naples became fairly widely accepted from 1808. The neo-gothic Lutheran church (1862-1865) was founded on a plot bequeathed to the Franco-German community by Giuseppe Garibaldi. The building project was entrusted to the Swiss architect Mauke. The inside of the church retains a baptisimal font given by Count Bernstorff in 1854. The original stained-glass windows were destroyed during the last world war.
