Right off of Quattro Canti in the historic center of Palermo is the stunning Church of Saint Joseph of the Theatines. Initially built by the austere, yet aristocratic Catholic order between 1612 and 1645, over the 17th century the interior decor grew to reflect the era”s popular Baroque art and design style, one that was intended to stun the beholder with its grandeur of details, color contrasts, and flamboyance. This chapel pictured, featuring the Madonna does just that with its inlaid marble finery and extravagant sculptured ornamentation.
