Inside the church of San Lorenzo in Lucina in Rome, Italy.

"The most ancient memories of the basilica go back to the 5th century. It was later completely rebuilt by Pasquale II (1099-1118) and consecrated in 1130 by Anacletus II, the antipope. For a long time, the church served the outer limits of the populated area to the north. At the end of the 16th century, it came to have one of the largest number of parishioners. In 1606, Paul V granted it to the Chierici Regolari Minori of St. Francis Caraccioli, known as the Caracciolini. Towards the end of the 17th century, drastic rebuilding got underway, directed by Cosimo Fanzago (1591-1678), of which only the marble inlay pulpit and two baptismal fonts survive today. The nave shows its 19th century character, due to the restoration undertaken in 1856-60 by Pope Pius IX (whose coat of arms is repeated twice in the lacunar ceiling)." (Text found inside the church).

Wikipedia: "The church or a chapel existed in the 9th century, but was rebuilt following reports of a miracle. In 1165, it is recorded as Santa Maria in Via, whose appellative means "on the Way", with a reference to the close by Via Flaminia.

On the site there was the house of Cardinal Pietro Capocci, with a well in the stables. On the night of 26 September 1256, the well overflowed. A picture of Our Lady was floating on the waters, which disappeared as soon as the picture was taken. Pope Alexander IV declared it a miracle, and ordered the construction of a chapel on its place; in the chapel (the first on the right of the current church) there is still the well of the miracle.

Pope Innocent VIII ordered the construction of the current church, which was built in 1491-1513. Renovations were performed under Francesco da Volterra and later by Carlo Lombardi. The façade and portico were designed by Pietro da Cortona (1660). The main altar was decorated by Santi Ghetti. The works were completed under Cardinal Saint Robert Bellarmine, titular of the church, in 1604. [...] The current Cardinal-Priest is Raúl Eduardo Vela Chiriboga from Ecuador. The church serves as a national church in Rome for the Ecuadorian community.

The church has been served by the Servite Order since a grant of Pope Leo X in 1513".
