Part one of Baroque begins at St. Peter's in Rome, and details the birth of the Baroque tradition as it burst forth in Italy. This program concentrates on Rome - a hotbed of Baroque art and architecture. "The Eternal City" is where the Baroque began, and here Waldemar Januszczak explores the theatricality of St. Peter's cathedral and piazza and works by Borromini. He encourages us to examine the painted ceilings of the city, including that of the celebrated St. Ignacio. Also featured in this film are many works by Caravaggio, Baroque's greatest revolutionary.
