Church of St. Ignatius, Triumph of St. Ignatius ceiling fresco
Masterpiece of illusionist Late Baroque painting: the multitude of figures which seem to be freely floating in the space is strictly ruled by the laws of perspective. Example of quadratura or perspective painting recently brought to Rome by Enrico Haffner.
