The church San Lorenzo in turin was built starting from 1668 by Guarini for the Theatinerorden, to which it belonged. The swung yokes are remarkable in the area of the central dome, an idea Borrominis, which was developed further. The dome is a masterpiece of the construction - which ribs carry the lantern -, which created a dramatic contrast of light and shade.
