La Venerabile Arciconfraternita dei SS. Ambrogio e Carlo

The Cupola

This final work of Pietro da Cortona exemplifies the apex of the classic baroque style. An array of elegant columns sustains and keeps in place the whole sphere. The minor cupola with the foot-pieces, was decorated by Brandi for the Holy Year of 1675. They represent the eternal Father and the Evangelists.
