Abstract
Recently discovered documents record Carlo Rainaldi's work on the convent facility at the church of S. Lorenzo in Lucina in Rome. In addition, a Rainaldi drawing found in the archives demonstrates the architect's project to redesign radically the façade of the church. The design is modest and was never executed, but the project is clearly related to Rainaldi's work at S. Maria in Campitelli. Moreover, the façade design suggests a new dimension of Alexander VII's planning for this area of the city. DOI: 10.2307/989977
