Fragments of the decorative marble cladding, presbytery pilasters

When the high altar was nearing conclusion, the marble worker Francesco Raguzzini started to decorate the eight pilasters near the presbytery. The surfaces were covered with a succession of squares containing palm branches and acanthus garlands. The many fragments which have been recovered allow experts to reconstruct the decorative pattern. Inside the huge frames between the squares were torch-bearing angels made by the sculptors of the high altar statues, Francesco Pagano and Matteo Bottigliero.
