Built between 1882 and 1887, All Saints' Anglican Church was one of a plethora of Protestant churches to spring up in Rome in the years after 1870, when papal rule of the Eternal City came to an end.
Its architect was George Edmund Street (1824-81), a leading practitioner of the Gothic revival, who had just completed St Paul's Within the Walls, the first Protestant church to be built inside the ancient city walls.
The striking neo-Gothic spire has only been a part of the Roman skyline since 1937.
