Rome is still the home of many of the greatest masterpieces of seventeenth-century art and architecture. The city was transformed into nothing short of an urban theater, something that shapes it to this day. Through architectural and urbanist interventions Rome was remade between the late sixteenth and the middle of the eighteenth centuries. At a smaller scale, but with the same attitude of a collaboration between the various arts, painting and sculpture reshaped the visual arts. This trip allows us to examine the emergence and development of the Baroque style in painting, sculpture and architecture: Annibale Carracci, Caravaggio, Pietro da Cortona, Maderno, Borromini, and of course Bernini worked in all three of those mediums.
