The architect of the church of S. Chiara a Monte Cavallo in Rome was not Giacomo della Porta, as usually believed, but Annibale Lippi. The new attribution is based on documentary evidence, which also indicates how the error found its way into the modern literature. The building history of the church is then traced on the basis of contemporary archival sources. Although S. Chiara was destroyed in the late 19th century, its identification is significant: it documents the activity of Annibale Lippi at a time that is crucial for attribution to him of the Villa Medici in Rome.
