Baroque Sicilian

Sicily is full of Baroque architecture. You can detail yourself silly doing studies of the multiple columns, many-leveled cornices, sculptures, and windows on these buildings. Much of the Baroque creativity was lavished on churches such as this one in Ragusa, Sicilia, Italia. But theater sets of the era looked just like churches. Religion has always been good theater in Italy. This is only one little section of a church facade covered in dazzling carved details.
