In 1920 it became part of the collection of National Museum of Castel Sant’Angelo as a work of Alessandro Algardi. Later in 1954, the scale mode was attributed to Giuseppe Rusconi because of its similarity with other Rusconi’s works . Only in 2002 Debenedetti, an italian art historian, attributed this mode to Pietro Pacilli as the first composition of the sculpture situated in San Pietro.
