In 1575 Gregory XIII raised to congregation the Oratory institution founded twenty years earlier by Filippo Neri. On the occasion the ancient church of Santa Maria in Vallicella was assigned to the saint and henceforth called the New Church because of the reconstruction work that had begun in the same year. The architecture, the work of Matteo da Città di Castello, was inspired by the model, later revised, of the Chiesa del Gesù. The interior decoration was carried out during the seventeenth century. Pietro da Cortona frescoed the dome with the Triumph of the Trinity for the Jubilee of 1650. In the years that followed, he frescoed the ceiling with the Madonna and St. Philip Neri, depicting the vision of Our Lady who appeared holding up an unsafe beam during the reconstruction of the church.
