  Santa Maria della Vittoria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, Rome, is the only structure designed and completed by the early Baroque architect Carlo Maderno, though its façade was erected by Giovanni Battista Soria during Maderno's lifetime, 1624–1626—showing the unmistakable influence of Maderno's Santa Susanna nearby, and though the interior suffered a fire in 1833 and required restoration.
The church was begun in 1605 as a chapel dedicated to Saint Paul for the Discalced Carmelites, with Scipione Borghese as patron.
The Cardinal Priest of the Titulus S. Mariae de Victoria was Giuseppe Caprio, until his death in October 2005.
