The Museo di Roma (Palazzo Braschi: Piazza di S. Pantaleo) has a new exhibition entitled 'Baroque Celebrations' which finishes on the 26th July. Baroque style was founded in Rome in the 17th century and spread throughout Europe. The style is characterised by its use of exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail, in order to produce drama, tension and so forth in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, theatre and music. There is a selection of 50 engravings at the exhibition, all of which document Rome as the 'Great Theatre Of The World'. During this period, the 17th century, Rome often organised religious and non-religious feasts and ceremonies. These were complemented by temporary stage sets that were created by famous architects of those times. Many of these scenes are depicted in this wonderful engravings. This is part of the project 'Barocco a Roma. La Meraviglia delle Arti (Baroque Rome. The Wonder of Arts)' and is promoted by the Fondazione Roma.
