Adorned with elegant arches, it has a beautiful Bregno marble portal, which is decorated with friezes, garlands of flowers and fruit, and with the Della Rovere coat of arms. Because of its elegance and harmony, this portal is also known as the Porta del Paradiso. The Corsia also stands out for the Octagon that rises above it, enriched with mullioned windows and decorated with coats of arms and medallions, and the entrance archway is by Bernini. The revolving box for taking foundlings into convents is preserved on one side of the building - it took in unfortunate newborns and alms.
