  • I loved the art (including by Rubens), the spaciousness, the ceilings, the tombs and side chapels - this made it one of my favourite churches in Rome. 
  • The arch, the dome and the apse, originally just blanched according to a wish of saint Filippo Neri, were then decorated with frescoes by Pierre de Cortona between 1647 and 1666. On the vault fresco present "Our Lady and St Philip Neri" and refers to the episode of the vision of 1576 during the construction of the Church: our Lady appears now support a beam that is threatening to collapse over the chapel where were kept the Blessed Sacrament and the "Madonna Vallicelliana" during the work. In the apse is represented the "Virgin among angels and saints"; on the cupola of the "triumph of the Trinity" ("God the father and Christ" on the dome and the "Holy Spirit" in the Lantern). On the sides of the dome the prophets biblical Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Isaiah and Daniel.
