The church of Santa Maria Annunziata in Borgo, which is known locally as the Nunziatina, was built between 1742 and 1745 by Pietro Passalacqua (1690-1748).
The church served as an oratory for the Archconfraternity of the Holy Spirit (Arciconfraternita di Santo Spirito), which was attached to the nearby Hospital of the Holy Spirit (Ospedale di Santo Spirito in Sassia). It originally erected in Borgo Santo Spirito, but in 1940 it was dismantled, and ten years later it was rebuilt in its present position.
Its façade is one of the most beautiful examples of the 18th-century style in Rome.
