San Gregorio della Divina Pietà is a small Roman Catholic church facing the Piazza Gerusalemme located in Rione Sant'Angelo, in Rome, Italy. It is located near the Great Synagogue of Rome and the former Jewish quarter of Rome. It is sometimes referred to as San Gregorietto due to its small size. In the past, it was also called San Gregorio a Ponte Quattro Capi or Pons Judaeorum due to its proximity to the bridge known now as Pons Fabricius, connecting the sector to the Tiber island.

  • Hidden treasure of Rome. Perennially closed, indeed barred. Impossible to visit. It is not known who to turn to for an internal visit, even for a fee. Typical Italian and Vatican carelessness. Too bad.

  • This church, in Piazza Monte Savello, has very ancient origins, and is called St. Gregory of the Divine Pieta (also St. Gregory at the Four Chiefs Bridge), in the eighteenth century it was completely restored. In the subsequent restoration of 1858, the inscription of a passage of the Bible, in Latin and Hebrew, was included in the facade of the church. Here, in fact, the pretensions that were imposed on the Jews during the period of the papal state were held. The facade is presented with a simple line, on two orders. The first stands out an important portal, with two lesenes on the sides, superimposed by the inscription described above and by a large oval fresco representing the Crucifixion of Christ. On the second at the portal there is a large window with balustrade crowning a curved pediment with an Angioletto inside and at the top of which is placed a cross. The interior is presented to a single aisle. Notes: 1) The inscription of the following verse of ISAIA was made to be asked by a Jew who had converted: "I extend my hand all day to a disobedient people, who are beating a way which is not the right." 2) On the right side of the Church there is a particular alms box with the following inscription: ELEMOSIN – FOR – POVERE - ONORATE FAMILY - VERGOGNOS
