Further details
Detail of Chapel 5. Sculptures have been attributed to Francesco Silva (1568-1641); polycromy Carlo Nuvolone (1953 guide; website below). Papavassiliou posits a later date for construction of the chapel (1683), making attribution of sculptures to Agostino more likely. Fresco by anonymous artist.
