The decoration of the dome

The dome is decorated by Pier Francesco Guala, who enriches the beautiful Baroque architecture with figures of the apostles at the base of the arches and a triumph with Angels, Madonna and Trinity in the vault. Guala also creted the altarpiece with the Visitation (here in copy, with the original preserved at the Opera Pia Faccio and Frichieri di Carignano.)

The decoration of the vault is considered by Vittone too magnificent, so much to assert that his architectural idea was ruined because the play of lights at various levels was no longer legible
