Gian Lorenzo Bernini - The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa
Santa Maria Della Vittoria, a little basilica on Via XX Settembre, near Piazza della Repubblica in Rome, belongs to the Discalced Carmelites. They guard, with great zeal, the magnificent work of art by Bernini, “The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa,” their patron. It is a piece from the mid-17th century and is considered the apex of Bernini’s artistic genius.
