Altar dedicated to Saint Alexius

The altar dedicated to Saint Alexius is decorated with a panel illustrating his death. The high-relief scene is the work of Giovanni Francesco Rossi (1660-1663) but shows the narrative approach and classical composition typical of Alessandro Algardi, one of Rossi’s known collaborators.

The stucco ceiling is the work of Ercole Ferrata, and shows angels and cherubs with the symbols of Saint Alexius: a pilgrim’s staff, floral wreath and lily.
