Borromini, Francesco (1599-1667)
NOTES: This is from an album of photographs of Rome taken between 1865-1890. The album was part of a collection belonging to Frederick Etchells. This image is likely to before 1883 as the two bell towers added in 1626-1627 were demolished in 1883. The design of the bell towers has been attributed to either Borromini or Carlo Maderno who was the Chief Papal Architect at that time.
