San Marcello al Corso is a church devoted to Pope Marcellus I. While the tradition holds that the church was built over the prison of Pope Marcellus I (d. 309), it is known that the Titulus Marcelli was already present in 418, when Pope Boniface I was elected here. Pope Adrian I, in the 8th century, built a church on the same place, which is currently under the modern church.

Palazzo Venezia

The Palazzo di Venezia (formerly Palace of St. Mark) is a palazzo (palace) just north of the Capitoline Hill. The original structure of this great architectural complex consisted of a modest medieval house intended as the residence of the cardinals appointed to the church of San Marco. In 1469 it became a residential papal palace, having undergone a massive extension, and in 1564, Pope Pius IV, to win the sympathies of the Republic of Venice, gave the mansion to the ambassadors of La Serenissima on condition that a part of the building should be kept as a residence for the cardinals—the Apartment Cibo—and that the Venetian Republic should provide for the building's maintenance and future restoration. It also houses the Museo di Palazzo Venezia, which exhibits galleries of art, predominantly pottery, tapestry, statuary from the early Christian era up to early Renaissance.
