Not long after the end of the work on the marble of Saint Camillus de Lellis’ statue in Basilica Vaticana in October 1753, the Camillians commissioned Pietro Pacilli to create a group of angels and cherubs for the main altar of Santa Maria Maddalena, the main church of the order of Camillians, to resemble the Vatican statue.
