Piazza Cavour
Neighborhood: Prati - Clodia - Trionfale - Foro Italico
Overview

Although sitting in a corner of Piazza Cavourbeside other visually impressive buildings (like the recently renovated Adriano theater), the Valdese church succeeds in grabbing attention with its elegance and eclectic combination of German Romanesque and Byzantine styles. The church has two cylindrical side-towers, which were built to unite the construction to the buildings on either side. The interior has no holy images - as prescribed by Valdese doctrine - while Christian symbols and floral motifs are seen in the windows. The church dates from the early 20th Century, having been built shortly after the Valdese Faculty of Theology was created with its well-stocked library.
