Dome Interior of Sant’Agnese in Agone on Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy

You might get a stiff neck admiring the dome inside of Sant’Agnese in Agone. Its design style is called empyrean meaning heaven-like. The fresco is entitled “The Apotheosis of St. Agnes into the Glory of Heaven.” The painting portrays Saint Agnes being welcomed into heaven by a host of angels and saints. Ciro Ferri spent the last 19 years of his life creating this masterpiece. He died in 1689, four years before the project was finished.
