The baroque architecture of Sicily by Maria Giuffrè( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The marvels of Sicilian Baroque - the dramatic power of its architecture, and the emotional quality of its decorative art - are well known. Numerous studies have been made, ranging from a locus on the principal Sicilian towns and cities or key architectural themes - the urban landscape, churches, palaces, villas - to an examination of its chronology, hut none of these gives a comprehensive view." "This book looks at the subject from a different angle. It seeks by verbal analysis and above all by revelatory photography to define what makes the Baroque of Sicily distinctive. How does it differ from the Baroque not only of other countries but also from that of 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 'capital' cities such as Palermo and Catania, and smaller towns like Noto? To what extent did it absorb styles from abroad, both through travel and through pictures and treatises? How decisive was that Sicilian speciality, the earthquake, as a factor in change and renewal? Ail these questions go to the heart of an architecture that was at the same time open to the whole world of European Baroque and yet stubbornly protective of its own unique identity."--BOOK JACKET

La Sicile baroque by Maria Giuffrè( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cet ouvrage, porté par une réflexion sur les modes et les temps du baroque en Sicile, cherche à mettre en évidence ses spécificités, les traits qui le distinguent des tendances artistiques se développant, en parallèle, dans d'autres régions d'Europe. L'historien de l'art Giulio Carlo Argan a défini le baroque sicilien comme le " témoignage d'un effort moderne, le plus grandiose et le plus audacieux peut-être que l'île ait jamais fourni ". Ce point de vue très convaincant surtout si l'on considère les réalisations exceptionnelles qui ont été construites dans le Sud-Est de la Sicile, le Val di Noto, après le séisme de 1693 résume bien une opinion très largement partagée. Une opinion qui justifie que l'on s'intéresse aujourd'hui de plus près à cet âge d'or de l'île et que l'on en conserve le souvenir. Les photographies de Melo Minnella exaltent la virtuosité et l'inventivité des décors : pierres sculptées, marqueteries de marbres polychromes, stucs, fresques ... De Palerme à Val di Noto, ce livre fait un tour d'horizon somptueux du baroque sicilien
