St. MARY OF LORETO IN VIA S. GIOVANNI IN LATERANO

S. MARIA DI LORETO IN VIA S. GIOVANNI IN LATERANO
About 1700/1720 maybe by Giuseppe Sardi (1680/1753), according to Paolo Portoghesi, for Clement XI Albani (1700/21)
It was demolished in the years 1937/61 with the adjacent monastery for the construction of the Esattoria Comunale (Municipal Tax Building)
It remains only the fa├žade, restored in 2000
During the demolition a Roman mosaic was found with “Battle of gladiators against wild beasts” now kept in the Municipal Tax Building
