Sant'Egidio in Trastevere

< previous > < index > < next >
The ornate molded Baroque doorcase is embellished with curlicues and strapwork, and above the lintel is a dedicatory inscription. Above this in turn is a raised segmental pediment, containing a swag tied with ribbons, and this is supported by two little pilasters bearing the symbol of a column. This refers to the Colonna family, of course, who put up the money for the building.
