On the occasion of the Jubilee of 1625, the great cardinals flanked Pope Urban VIII in the commissioning of public works. Cardinal Alessandro Peretti Montalto, nephew of Sixtus V, was dedicated to the continuation of work on the construction of the Church of Sant’Andrea della Valle. Inside, are frescoes by Domenichino, executed between 1623 and 1628. The apse presents the stories of Sant’Andrea; in the centre, The Calling of Peter and Andrew, on the left, The Flagellation of the saint and, on the right, The Martyrdom. Majestic figures of the four Evangelists, surrounded by joyous angels and accompanied by their traditional symbols, the angel for Matthew, the lion for Mark, the bull for Luke and the eagle for John, can be seen on the spandrels of the dome.
