History

San Antonino was originally founded in the 7th century by a wealthy family and dedicated to Saint Anthony Abbot. The monastery used to keep pigs as the pig is the emblem of St. Anthony, and they caused quite a disturbance in the surrounding neighborhood, causing several laws to be passed in order to control the pigs' activities. The church was rebuilt in the mid-17th century, however the façade was never completed. In 1982, the church was closed and deconsecrated.
