11. Tomb of Paolo Bergami

by Camillo Torreggiani
The most prominent feature of this funerary monument is a sculpture of a veiled woman holding a cross in her right hand, and the remains of what would appear to be a chalice in her left; it has been identified as an allegory of Chastity and Faith. The work also features a medallion depicting the profile of the late Paolo Bergami, which is flanked by two storks fighting against two snakes, representing the eternal struggle between good and evil.
