Immediately above the front door you'll see the tomb of Cecco di Sangro, a soldier who had been considered dead due to battle wounds. He had already been laid in a coffin, when he suddenly recovered and jumped out of it, terrorizing his enemies and knocking them down.

The creator of the sculpture also made the chapel's main altar depicting the group of the Deposition of Christ.
