The 17th and the 18th centuries are the centuries of wonder in Europe and for the lands of the Po valley, in particular.
The classical rationality gives way to astonishing feelings that visual arts, as well as literature and music with their realism, can perfectly convey, while scientific discoveries and new technologies affect the fast-changing society: a new culture open to all men.
This volume explores the main testimonies of this period in the area of the Po Valley between Enza and Secchia rivers and between Po river and the Apennines.
