In 1533, The Church of England became independent from the Catholic one by breaking the relationship with Rome and setting the clergy at the orders of the King. This represents also nowadays a sort of “intermediate way” between Catholic religion, of which the biggest part of the liturgy is maintained, and the protestant one.
It widespread all over the world as a consequence of the British expansion in the colonies. After the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America the oath of faithfulness to the English Crown became incompatible with the new political situation, for this reason the Episcopal Church was founded: it has same characteristics as the Anglican one but it is at the same time independent.

In 1880 in Rome because of the needs of the growing British community this magnificent Anglican church was built, dedicated to all Saints. The original project belongs to the British architect George Edmund Street, but it was completed in 1887, by his son Arthur Edmund. The church structure is made of a beautiful neo-gothic façade with a great impulse from bottom to top that was again stressed out in 1937 with the construction of the tower. The interior part has three groin vaulted navies; the illumination comes through the coloured windows from which the polychrome marbles coming from the most famous Italian caves are stressed out.
