The inside is quite beautiful with ornate gilding and stucco decorations. The wonderful nave ceiling fresco of the Assumption is by Giacinto Calandrucci. This was completed in 1706, the year before his death.
The round ceiling frescoes were by Andrea and Giuseppe Orazi, and Giovanni Battista Parodi.
The marble floor has some colourful inlays of fruit and vegetables giving a nod to the fruit and vegetable marketeers.
At the main altar is an icon of the Madonna and Child, surrounded by golden rays and vibrant apse frescoes.
