Santo Spirito dei Napoletani is a Roman Catholic church on via Giulia, in the Regola regione of Rome. It was the national church of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and is now the regional church for Campania.
In Pope Pius V's catalogue of churches, this church is known as 'S. Aura in strada Iulia' (Saint Aurea in the via Julia) and was then part of a monastery. It was dedicated to Saint Aurea, a martyr from Ostia. In the 14th century it was also known as 'Sant'Eusterio', as a result of the catalogue of Cencio Camerario (n. 232) and of the anonymous Turin catalogue, which states "Ecclesia s. Austerii de campo Senensi habet unum sacerdotem" (the church of s. Austerii in campo Senensi has one priest). By 1572 the church was in a poor state - that year, it and the monastery were assigned to the Confraternity of the Holy Spirit of the Neapolitans. The Confraternity demolished the existing church and built a new one dedicated to the Holy Spirit, which was inaugurated in 1574.
The church was rebuilt twice more, to designs by Domenico Fontana or perhaps Ottaviano Mascherino at the end of the 16th century. At the beginning of the 18th century it was given a major redesign by Carlo Fontana. Antonio Cipolla carried out major restorations to the interior and rebuilt the facade in 1853.

  • One of the few churches dedicated to the Holy Spirit, even in pictorial iconography the symbolism of the spirit entrusted to the dove, a bird faithful to the other half, did not have in art the same weight as the Father and son. The facade of the church has a fresco edunt.

  • Interesting type of facade with fresco, interior with large painted blades, appreciable, but in Rome they are of little value
