While the church’s foundation date is unknown, documents referring to the church date back to at least 1612. Cardinal Francesco Cennini assumed responsibility for the church in 1622. It was restored in 1802.

It has a single altar decorated with a distinctive painting from the Umbria school. The church houses a striking 17th century Dead Christ (Cristo Morto) sculpture in wood.

The church is only opened during Holy Week, and the Dead Christ is carried in procession by the Brotherhoods on the evening of Good Friday. The church is decorated with pots of wheat: left to grow in the almost total darkness of the closed church, the wheat takes on an ethereal, pale white colour.
