Sicilian Baroque

Fully matured only after the flowering of reconstruction followed the devastating earthquake that hit the Val di Noto in 1693.

Before that date the Baroque style had struggled to establish itself in the island affected by the indigenous architectural tradition medievale late Renaissance and classical architecture has only recently established itself in the island. In the second half of the seventeenth century, however, the direct or indirect knowledge of the great architects of Baroque Rome had already experience fully mature Baroque.

Following the 1693 earthquake, local architects (many of them trained in Rome) and the designers and artists from elsewhere, they found an abundance of opportunities to create a sophisticated Baroque style popular at the same time and cultured, strongly characterized rooted in the territory. In the penultimate decade of the eighteenth century style then ended up being replaced by new fads that brought the neo-classicism.

The era of Baroque Sicily with her style, richly decorated, perfectly reflected the social history of the island, and came to symbolize the nobility of his swan song, leaving a mark on the island of architectural identity.
