San Carlo dei Lombardi is a Gothic-style, Roman Catholic church located on Via dei Calzaiuoli in central Florence, region of Tuscany, Italy. It has undergone many refurbishments over the year, and was originally dedicated to Sant'Anna e Michele, but since the early 17th century became the church of the local Lombard community and was dedicated to St Charles Borromeo.HistoryA church at the site existed since the 8th century, but was razed in 1284. The church was erected by the Council of the Signoria in 1349 under the direction of Neri di Fioravante and Benci di Cione. It was dedicated to St Anne, mother of Mary, to celebrate the overthrow of the rule of the Walter VI, Count of Brienne, and so-called Duke of Athens on July 26, 1343, the calendar day of the saint. Construction concluded in 1404 under Francesco Talenti In 1616, the church was transferred to a confraternity of the Lombards, and the church was rededicated to Carlo Borromeo.The Gothic facade with pointed arch portal, and a round window, is made of pietra serena bricks, and it leads to a single nave. It stands in front of the Orsanmichele church, which was contemporaneously built by shared construction outfits. The church suffered grave humidity damage from the 1966 flood of the Arno river. The entryway has been outfitted in 2006 with an interior transparent portal allowing the doors to remain open to passers-by.
