The Image of the Baroque

Published in association with the Institute for the Italian Encyclopedia


Aldo Scaglione and Gianni Eugenio Viola

In the ongoing attempt to offer new interpretations of cultural phenomena, the Baroque is not one of the most frequently discussed periods, but we can easily agree that it merits new attention. Most of the essays contained in this volume are interdisciplinary; in particular, they integrate literary, ideological, social, and artistic dimensions. Others aim to contribute to a sharper definition of this rather elusive phenomenon.
