Author: Giambattista Tiepolo
DATE: 1737-1739 POSITION: ceiling METHOD: monochrome fresco
The ceiling displays of an illustrated rosario near the six windows and, interpreted in a rococo style, it narrates the three biographical episodes of saint Domenico with the papal and cardinal privileges for the confraternities as it's theme. The representation of the Fifteenth misterys is developed in circled frames placed in the smaller rib vaults and the quadrilobates in the larger ones, each decorated with plaster knots.
It seems that Tiepolo was assisted by collaborators Francesco Zugno (1709-1787) and Giovanni Raggi (1712-1792?) for the execution of the "grisaille".
