Day 10 – Baroque

We visited few fundamental places of the baroque period in Rome :
S. Ignazio Loyola
Trevi Fountain
Church of San Carlo at the Four Fountains
Church of Sant’Andrea at Quirinale
Palazzo Barberini

After an introduction of the period we had a Drawing session with the artist and architect Gildo Incitti.
The drawing session is to understand the movement and dynamism of Baroque architecture through drawing mediums

The day was dedicated to understand the funda-mental characteristic of Baroque art, dynamism:
a sense of motion. Strong curves, rich decoration, and general complexity are all typical features of Baroque art and we visited the key architectures of this period.
Baroque architecture is distinguished primarily by richly sculpted surfaces. Whereas Renaissance architects preferred planar classicism, Baroque architects freely molded surfaces to achieve three-dimensional sculpted classicism. While the surface of a Renaissance building is typically neatly divided into sections, a Baroque surface is treated as a continuous whole. The site tour and drawing sessions are dedicated for the comprehension of this new architectural dynamic typology.
