IL FOGLIO has a story about how Pope Francis was a decisive factor in handing over a neo-Gothic Church in the centre of Rome, Santa Maria Immacolata all’Esquilino, to The SSPX.

It is going to be a Centre for Studies and, perhaps, their HQ. It is a pretty large complex.

Santa Maria Immacolata all'Esquilino is one of the Churches of Rome , in the Esquilino district , on Via Emanuele Filiberto.

The Church was built between 1896 and 1914, for The Friars of Charity , and was Consecrated by Cardinal Luigi Traglia on 21 April 1942.

The Church's Architectural Style is Neo-Gothic and has a facade flanked by two low Bell Towers; above the entrance Portal there is a mosaic of The Immaculate, wrapped in a cloak decorated with stars. The Interior has three Naves divided by columns, with windows .

The Congregation of The Grey Fathers broke up in 1973 . Today, the Church is a subsidiary place of worship in the Parish of Saint Marcellinus and Saint Peter to the Lateran.
