The Gesuiti's pulpit is an elaborate confection swathed in the heavy folds of a voluminous brocade curtain.... This white curtain decorated in a handsome green damask pattern is in fact made of marble; all of the walls of the church are covered with this same white and green imitation damask made of verde antico inlaid in slabs of white marble. The illusion is extraordinary.
