The style of Sicilian Baroque is recognizable not only by its typical Baroque curves and flourishes, but also by its grinning masks and putti, and a particular flamboyance that has given Sicily a unique architectural identity. This magisterial volume is generously illustrated throughout with breathtaking photographs and original drawings and plans, bringing into vivid relief the fruits of an extraordinary flowering of architectural genius.
