The narrow church or oratory of San Gaetano di Thiene is found in the middle of via dei Pispini in Siena, Italy. This oratory of the aristocratic Contrada del Nicchio (Sea-shell) was built from 1683-1700. The simple façade sports a large stucco seashell over the doorway. It houses a 14th-century painting depicting a Madonna and Child with Saints , which is likely the icon of Madonna del Forcone that had been previously venerated at an aedicule where the church stands.

  • Pour les articles homonymes, voir Église Saint-Gaëtan. L'église Saint-Gaëtan (Chiesa di San Gaetano di Thiene) est une petite église baroque dédiée à saint Gaëtan de Thiene, cofondateur des Théatins, située via dei Pispini à Sienne à son embranchement avec la via dell'Oliviera. Elle appartient à l'archidiocèse de Sienne. L'église a été construite entre 1683 et 1700 pour l'une des contrade de la ville (la Nobile Contrada del Nicchio - de la « Coquille » - dont le musée est adjacent) dont elle est l'oratoire. Sa façade est ornée d'une grande coquille de stuc avec une Vierge à l'Enfant entourée de saints (probablement la Madonna del Forcone d'un édicule proche datant du XVIe siècle). L'intérieur est orné d'œuvres picturales de Giuseppe Nicola Nasini et de son fils Apollonio. (fr)

Between 1686 -1705, Giacomo Franchini added much of the internal stucco decoration, including statues of Blessed Ambrogio Sansedoni (first niche on left); the second niche and almost in conversation with the first is St Gaetano (Saint Cajetan); on the right are St Vincenzo Ferrer (flame over head) and Blessed Giovanni Colombini with a crucifix in left hand. Next to altar are Saints Bernardino and Caterina of Siena. The ceiling was frescoed with the Theological virtues by Giuseppe Nasini and his pupil Stefano di Francesco Marzi. The work was completed in 1734 by Apollonio Nasini using designs and help by father Giuseppe Nicola. (en)
