Photographer's Note

"The Church of San Lorenzo, Turin, was begun by Guarino Guarini in 1668 for the Theatine Order, of which he was a member. The plan is remarkable for its curved bays pressing into the central domed space梐n idea developed from Borromini梑ut the dome is even more remarkable. It is a masterpiece of ingenious construction梩he ribs actually carry the lantern above them梬hich is also used to produce dramatic contrasts of light and shade."

John Julius Norwich, ed. Great Architecture of the World.

"A Guarini dome, such as the one in his Church of S. Lorenzo in Turin, becomes a luminous cage of slender intersecting ribs over which floats the light-filled space of the lantern visible through the complex rib network; the base of the dome is a circle, and the base of the buoyant lantern is formed by eight semicircular lobes, each framed by a pair of splayed ribs. This extraordinary configuration of space, light, and mass has been described by a Guarini scholar as 'a great work of hallucinatory engineering'."
