The total renovation of the church was commissioned by the new general of the Carmelite order, Father Giovanni Antonio Filippini. Work began in 1648 and the church was “restored and decorated”, as indicated by the inscription, by the Jubilee of 1650, even though it was actually completed in later years. The aisles are frescoed with 18 scenes from the life of the prophets Elijah and Elisha, by Gaspard Dughet. The use, dictated by the need for speed, of landscape painting as part of the theme in a sacred place can be defined as unique among Rome’s churches.
