The Church Of The Artists

Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria di Montesanto are two churches in Rome.
They are located on the Piazza del Popolo  at the entrance of Via del Corso on the square. The churches are often cited as "twin", due to their similar external appearance: they have indeed some differences, in both plan and exterior details.
The "twin" churches of Santa Maria di Montesanto (left) and Santa Maria dei Miracoli (right), seen from Piazza del Popolo. Between the two churches Via del Corso starts. Although very similar, differences can been seen in this image in the two small belfrys and in the two domes.
Santa Maria in Montesanto is well known  as  The Church of the Artists : when famous movie  or stage actors/actresses, artists die,  the funeral mass is usually celebrated in this church: that 's why it is called THE CHURCH OF THE ARTISTS.
