getting there: short walk from the Galleria Doria Pamphilj on the Via del Corso
Pope Leo X commissioned Jacopo Sansovini to quickly rebuild the church which was dedicated to Pope Marcellus I, the church's patron saint, and a chapel was purposely built to hold the 15th century crucifix that was saved.
The facade was completed in 1683 by Carlo Fontana.
In the first chapel on the right is the Annunciation by Lazzaro Baldi.
The fourth chapel on the left was decorated by Taddeo Zuccari and holds the crucifix that survived the fire.
