The funerai monuments of the Falconieri on the sidewalls of the presbytery were begun by Borromini and completed by Ciro Ferri. The former created the shape of the aedicule; the latter, the design of the coronation after the style of Cortona.
The High Altar Is the result of the work of twa great Baroque protagonists, Borromini and the artist and architect, Pietro da Cortona. It was he who first received the commission from Orazio Faiconieri, who was pari of the noble family owners ofthefamous palace in Via Giulia.  In 1634, Cortona created a wooden modei, which was Ieft on exhibition for a good twenty years, influencing artists like Algardi, Bernini and Borromini himself. In 1656, the architect from Ticino lent a hand in the arrangement of the altar carrying out severai modifications that, however, did not cancei Cortona’s mark.
