ITALIAN BAROQUE ARCHITECTURE, Piedmont; section of Cappella della SS. Sindone, 1667-90, Turin Cathedral, by Guarini. "The upper stage of the dome are composed of diminishing tiers of flattened rib-like arches stacked above each other like a house of cards, each framing a segmental window. This skeletal cone-shaped hexagon is surmounted by a circular lantern, rising from a ring supported by ribs forming a star pattern."

"Exterior the ribs over the segmental windows of the Cappella are like the zig-zag steps of a Ziggurat or tower of Babel, while the surmounting lantern also diminished in three stages like a pagoda or a Buddhist stupa."
