ITALIAN BAROQUE ARCHITECTURE, Piedmont;  church of S. Lorenzo, 1668-80, Turin, by Guarini. "At the upper sides, Serlian windows alternate with pendentives supporting the cone-shaped tower-like dome, which consists of eight semi-circular ribs disposed so as to crate an eight-pointed star with an open octagonal space in the centre. Above this space rises a tall lantern covered by a small dome which is itself constructed of ribs."

PALAZZO BARBERINI ha due scale monumentali: quella attribuita a Bernini, che rispecchia la tipologia cinquecentesca detta a "pozzo quadrato", e quella a chiocciola attribuita a Borromini, che si snoda intorno ad un vano ellittico, riprendendo quella di Palazzo Farnese a Caprarola, opera del Vignola. Ma sarà esatta l’attribuzione?
