San Filippo Neri
This was built by Guarini in 1679. After his death in 1683 and the disastrous collapse of the dome, only the ceiling masonry and the anterior part remained. Juvarra took over from Guarini who wanted to modify the original design, however, in the end, the works were entrusted to Sacchetti and Tavigliano. The work was completed by Barberis and Talucchi. Inside the holy building numerous paintings have been preserved which are extremely large and valuable. The works which stand out are 'The Virgin with Santa Caterina, San Eusebio, San Giovanni Battista and the Blessed Amedeo' by Cravoglia, 'San Filippo Neri' by Solimena and 'San Lorenzo' by Trevisani. In the third chapel on the right are the remains of the Blessed Valfre.
