Description: Santa Maria Donna Regina Church is called “Nuova” (new) to be distinguished from the older Angevin church of Santa Maria Donna Regina Vecchia. The earliest church was built on this location in the 14th century. The nuns from the adjacent monastery commissioned the new structure. While traditionally the architect Giovanni Guarino, a pupil of Francesco Grimaldi was cited as the architect of the present Baroque church, more recent documentation cites Giovanni Giacomo Conforto. The first documented payments for design were from 1626.
