Giacomo Serpotta was the leading Sicilian sculptor of the late Baroque art in Palermo. This incrediby talented artist contributed significantly to the development of the European artistic tradition. Neglected for too long by art historians, the significance of his work was recently reappraised by the British scholars Antony Blunt and Donald Garstang. Serpotta’s sculptures are absent from museums; they are to be admired in some of Palermo’s most important churches and oratories. This expert-led tour will enable you to familiarize yourself with the work of this maestro while developing a better understanding of and appreciation for different aspects of Sicilian artistic and cultural traditions.
