The first volume is a vastly expanded version of Maurizio Fagiolo dell’Arco’s pioneering two-volume work, co-edited with Silvia Carandini, L’effimero barocco: strutture della festa nella Roma del ‘600 (Roma: Bulzoni, 1977-1978). In the second volume, the authors chronicle over 1300 events in the years between 1700 and 1870.
