Because of the truss arches there are three separate nave ceilings, inserted in 1868. The ceiling is made of wood from the forests of the Florentine abbey of Vallombrosa, each span is divided by large golden frames into six lacunaries painted with a blue background and each intersection is decorated with a stud surrounded by crowns and palm trees, symbols of martyrdom.
