S Eugenio is a modern building, built under the orders of Pope Pius XII, who was christened Eugenio Pacelli, and dedicated to the patron saint of his name. Funds were raised from the gifts the pope had received from the Silver Jubilie of his episcopate (started in 1942), and the altar was consecrated in 1952.
S Eugenio is built in a Baroque style though with some updating. Above the altar is the in an alcove is a statue of the pope, which the face of the altar depicts the removal of Jesus from the cross. The church also contains some reasonable frescoes in some of the side chapels, especially in those dedicated to Sts Peter and Paul and the chapel of Our Lady at Fatima.
