The interior of the cathedral was completely refurbished in the 17th century in a grandiose classical style. Along with the ostentatious pictorial decoration older works can be admired such as the bronze statues of the Crucifixion and of Saints George and Maurilius, by Nicolò Baroncelli and Domenico di Paris (15th cent.) in the right transept; on the altar alongside, the splendid canvas of the Martyrdom of St Lawrence by Guercino (17cent.) is to be seen. The bowl-shaped apse is vaulted with the grandiose Last Judgment by Bastianino (16th cent.). In what is his masterpiece the artist displays great dramatic force, imagination and unconventionality in this work clearly inspired by Michelangelo.
