Weddings in Italy Rome – Anglican churches
All Saints Anglican Church was built in 1880 for English residents and visitors. It has a neo-Gothic interior and is decorated with multi-coloured Italian marble and rose stone from Arles in France.
The Church of St Paul-within-the-Walls (San Paolo entro le Mura) is an American Episcopal (Anglican) church. It was the first non-Catholic place of worship to be built in the city, and represents a unique testimony in Rome to Britain’s Arts and Crafts style. It’s also the most
interesting achievement to be realised in late nineteenth-century sacred art in Rome.
