BaroqEAT is a collection of 12 porcelain plates.

The graphics represent some of the most beautiful floor plans of Sicilian Baroque churches. A careful selection occurred through extensive research in the library and that is also a tribute to Noto, my hometown.

The graphics refer to the following churches: Chiesa dei Padri Crociferi, Chiesa del Carmine, Chiesa della SS.Trinità, Chiesa della Badia di Sant’Agata, Chiesa di Santa Chiara, Chiesa di San Giuseppe, Chiesa dei PP.
