The Late Baroque

In 1693 a catastrophic earthquake ravaged towns across south east Sicily (Val di Noto).
At the beginning of the 18th century, many architects and engineers of the time worked for the reconstruction, adopting and enhancing the baroque style, in force at the time.
The late Baroque of the Val di Noto originated from this reconstruction. It is represented by a sinuous alternation of convex and concavity games, made possible by the ductility of the local limestone, white and soft.
From 2002 the Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto are included in the Unesco World Heritage List.
