The Italian Prisoner Of War Church built near the end of the Second World War by Italian prisoners was sanctified in 1944 but was then neglected after the war.

Vagrants since used the church until it was later ruined by a fire. Eventually it was restored thanks to funding from the Italian consulate, it was then declared a national monument in 1977 after which it was donated to Pietermaritzburg City Council.

After much time, the deed to the church was given to one of the original Italian builders of the church. The Italian government funded a large sum of money for further restoration and are now in talks about moving the Italian Military Cemetery closer to the church and building a memorial museum here to honour and remember the prisoners of war.
