The altarpiece in the Chapel of St Peter is probably the work of the school of the Dalle Masegne brothers, Jacobello and Pierpaolo. It is divided into two orders by Saints. In the first are St Lucy, St Catherine of Alexandria, the Virgin and Child, St Mary Magdalen and St Clare, while in the second St Jerome, St John the Baptist, St Peter the Apostle, St James the elder and St Francis.
