Santa Maria in Campitelli

< previous > < index > < next >

In the passage to the left of the church entrance, is the Carrara marble funerary monument to Cardinal Giuseppe Bofondi from Forlì (1867). His obituary and escutcheon are applied to a huge pedestal, on which two female Virtues are sitting. To the left Prudence is leaning on a book, while, to the right, Justice holds forth a small olive branch. On a tall octagonal pedestal is the bust of the cardinal. The monument was executed by Francesco Fabi Altini.
