In it are preserved some precious works of art, in particular: in the first chapel on the right a late 16th century wooden crucifix above the presbytery the large Crucifixion painted by Luigi Morgari in the early 1920s, the first altar on the left the statue of Saint Gregory sculpted by Achille Alberti. In the sacristy are preserved some religious objects of Carlo Borromeo, including the PyX used to communicate the plague-stricken.
