Santa Maria dei Monti

< previous > < index > < next >
The dome has an octagonal drum, with a rectangular window having a triangular pediment in every other side. There is a projecting cornice with modillions. The actual dome is on a very low attic plinth, and is covered in lead with eight ellipsoidal sectors meeting at a tall lantern. The latter has narrow window-slots separated by volute buttresses, and a lead cupola terminating in a ball finial.
