On February 16, 1399, S. Maria asked for union with the nuns of S. Magno, Amelia, because of war and poverty. The pope gave jurisdiction over S. Maria to S. Magno as both were under the jurisdiction of S. Paolo of Rome. On July 30, 1426, there was a complaint that the structures had collapsed. Bishop Filippo Venturelle proposed that the pope transfer the nuns to Amelia, reserving for them the income of the community in Canale. Martin V issued a bull to this effect. In 1428, however, not every nun was at S. Magno. Some transferred to S. Stefano.
