Notable Members/Residents/Guests

In 1459, suor Drusinda di Bonifacio, a nun at S. Maria in Trastevere, left her monastery arbitrarily, and was subsequently confined to Tutti i Santi by Cardinal di S. Lorenzo in Lucina. According to Saundra Weddle, Suor Beatrice Vitelli left Tutti i Santi to visit her half-sister Faustina at Le Murate. Beatrice had originally left Tutti to "take a cure" at her home of her parents. In 1569 she and another nun, Suor Olimpia, received papal permission to visit Le Murate. Beatrice stayed until she was forced to return to Tutti i Santi in 1577. Beatrice also received a license to leave Tutti i Santi for Jubilee.
