Summary

According to semiologist Omar Calabrese, postmodern culture can be described as Neobaroque. If so, what is Baroque and why is it so relevant to our time? Art historian Erwin Panofsky argues that it was essentially an 'Italian phenomenon' and comparatist Mario Praz explains that it put forward a 'new interpretation of the Universe', which marked the beginning of modernity with a new vision of the connections between arts and science. We will examine some of these connections between modern and postmodern age, while challenging the 'great divide' between high and popular culture. From this contemporary and interdisciplinary perspective, we will tackle the meaning of the Baroque style by looking at Bruno's infinite universe and the making of modern science with Galileo, Marino's poetics of the marvellous and Basile's invention of the fairy tale, the birth of opera with Monteverdi and the passionate realism of Caravaggio and Artemisia.
