Stradella’s murder and burial

In the church, the musician Andrea Stradella was buried. He was killed for passional reasons on the stairs of San Pietro in Banchi. It is said that Stradella, escaped from Venice, had found protection from the family Lomellini. One of the women in the family, establishing a romantic relationship with Stradella, caused the ire of the patriarchy. It was then decided to pay two assassins who murdered the musician right in front of the stairs of San Pietro in Banchi.

A portrait of Stradella, described in the literature as a man of great charm.
