186 pp, 12mo (7 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated in b&w and color with photographs, reproductions. ITALIAN TEXT ONLY. Biblioteca Modern Mondadori CCCLII. "Il nome di Gian Lorezo Bernini chiama subito alla mente una ser ie di opere famose: sculture, monumenti e complessi architettonici che hanno dato a Roma nel Seicento un aspetto fastoso, aulico, barocco. Bernini e infatti uno dei creatori dello stile barocco, l'inventore d'una nuova visione delle arti f i g u r a t i v e , in cui pittura, scultura, architettura, rompendo le leggi armoniose della tradizione rinascimentale, si rinnovano per fondersi nei capolavori del maestro in una 'unita delle arti', che segna un punt d'arrivo della creativita uman a, u n ca pi to lo n uo vo della storia dell'arte non soltanto italiana ma europea...."
