Sicilian art found its own voice and blossomed under the Spanish domination, encouraged and promoted by the Catholic church. This was the period when the patron saints of Sicily, beloved by their local communities, were celebrated in sculpture and paintings. A peak was reached in the baroque era with the redesign of the island’s city centres.
