"Chiesa di S.Maria in Campitelli" Chiesa Santa Maria in Campitelli Tip by Julius_Caesar

by Julius_Caesar

The church, designed by Bernini?s pupil, Carlo Rainaldi, was completed in 1667. Inside the church a fabulous gilded altar tabernacle with spiral columns was designed by Giovanni Antonio de Rossi to contain an image of the Virgin. The side chapels are decorated by some of Rome?s finest Baroque painters, such as Sebastiano Conca, Giovanni Battista Gaulli (known as Il Baciccia) and Luca Giordano.
