The church of San Lorenzo in Lucina is built on the site of the martyrdom of the Saint, who died during the persecutions of the Emperor Valerian in 258. Built by Pope Sixtus III (432-40), it was restored several times from the 13th to the 19th centuries. In the Fonseca Chapel, designed by Bernini, is a marble bust of Gabriele Fonseca sculpted by the artist and on the left wall, the Glory of the Madonna of Santa Maria Maggiore, a canvas from 1706 depicting a flight of angels taking the image of the Madonna venerated in S. Maria Maggiore to the skies in triumph, as described by an inscription.
