Abstract: The Baroque age is generally considered to have begun in the last third of the sixteenth century and to have ended in the mid-eighteenth, covering the period of time between the Italian Renaissance (and its Mannerist sequel) and Neo-classicism. In Europe, the Baroque architectural expression was an integral component of an aristocratic culture incorporating art and architecture, religious and philosophical attitudes, political, military and social structures, geographical and scientific discoveries, literary achievements and ceremonial and theatrical displays. Towards the end of the sixteenth century these different aspects of human endevour started interacting together to form the basis of a new Baroque lifestyle.
