Piazza del Gesù is one of the most typical squares in the historic center of Rome, and takes its name from the homonymous church of the Jesuit order. He owes his celebrity also:
at Palazzo Cenci-Bolognetti, at number 46, where until 1994 the Christian Democracy party had its national headquarters;
to the fact that, since 1910, the Serenissima Grand Lodge of Italy of the Alam Masonic obedience has its headquarters at number 47;
in Palazzo Altieri located on the opposite side of the square along Via del Plebiscito and headquarters of the ABI.
