Description/NotesBorn in Switzerland as Francesco Castelli, he changed his name when he came to Rome in 1619 and entered the studio of Carlo Maderno, a distant relative. Following Maderno's death, he entered Bernini's atelier. San Carlo was Borromini's first independent commission after leaving Bernini's studio. It is a narrow urban site, missing its northeast corner because of one of the fountains. Both the interior and the facade (completed by Borromini's nephew Bernardo to Borromini's design) are filled with highly rhythmic concave-convex movement and comlex geometries. The dedication of the church is to San Carlo Borromeo, canonized 1610. The adjoining Spanish Trinitarian monastary is also by Borromini, ca. 1630." See: http://roma.katolsk.no/carlo4fontane.htm
