Sicilia - Il Barocco della Val di Noto

In the Val di Noto there are admirable examples of late Baroque art and architecture of which they constitute a moment of synthesis, presenting remarkable features of urban and architectural homogeneity. Following the 1693 earthquake, the major urban centers of the Wall were reduced to rubble. The subsequent reconstruction of the first decades of the 18th century saw the towns devastated by the earthquake adopt architectural and artistic solutions that characterized the entire Wall. This veritable flowering of Baroque taste has been recognized as a World Heritage Site by the supranational UNESCO organization.
