The Baroque Architecture of Sicily

The Baroque Architecture of Sicily


Giuffre, Maria and Melo Minnella

Cl. New York, 2008

Book ID: 77083

This book looks at what makes the Baroque of Sicily distinctive. How does it differ from the Baroque in other countries and in other Italian regions, such as Rome and Piedmont? How was it possible to impose that particular character upon churches and palaces, sculpture and painting? What was the role of cities such as Palermo and Catania, and smaller towns like Noto? To what extent did it absorb styles from abroad? How decisive a factor in change and renewal was the Sicilian earthquake?
