Rome cathedral ceiling

We visited Rome several years ago and by chance walked into a cathedral with a stunning ceiling. It was obviously painted to appear as though you were looking up at the sky, through clouds into heaven with angels hovering above. There was a 3D effect to the painting that we found amazing. I am returning to Rome this summer and would like to visit this church again but I do not recall the which cathedral it was. It was within walking distance of Piazza Navona and the Vatican. I am wondering if anyone would recognize what I am talking about and be able to tell me the name of this cathedral.

It's not a cathedral (seat of a bishop), and it's probably Sant'Ignazio.

If so, Zerlina is right, it's Sant'Ignazio

Thanks for the photo. That confirmed it. Zerlina was correct. I appreciate the responses from both of you. You have probably saved me hours of time wandering the streets, poking my head into churches.
