Borromini, Bernini, and
the Rivalry that Shaped Baroque Rome

TUESDAY, JANUARY 10th at 7:30pm

Museo Italo-Americano  – Fort Mason Bldg C,  San Francisco


Francesco Borromini and Gian Lorenzo Bernini are two giants of 17th century Italian architecture, and both are considered founders of the Baroque style. But the two men could not have been more different, in both temperament and in the kind of work that they produced.
While continually competing for the same commissions, both would eventually contribute works that would be
regarded as some of the finest architectural achievements regarded as some of the finest architectural achievements in Western Art.

Michael Stehr will discuss the careers of these artists, the differences between their aesthetics, and how the rivalry between them shaped the skyline of Baroque Rome.
