This romanesque construction, dating the XII cerntury, originally had three naves with a double row of 12 cipolin marble columns.

In the XVII century the two aisles were walled up and the columns themselves sold a 265 scudos.

Later on, the left nave was pulled down in order to widen Via del Colle.
Especially interesting are the frescoes, dating from the second half of the XII century, which represent the legend of the emperor Costantine and of St.Sylvester and decorate the triumphal arch and the apse.
