Chapel of St. Joseph
The right hand transept chapel is dedicated to St Joseph, designed by Giovanni Battista Contini in 1697. The whole altar is inspired by the chapel opposite, and has four Corinthian columns in verde antico supporting a bowed triangular pediment with a recessed central section. The gilded rays from a hidden window is the most obvious homage to Bernini.
