Description
Oratory is a novel of a brilliant sculptor long regulated to the shadows of the art world. The protagonist Giacomo Serpotta was a genius. The story of his trials and the high points of his career are set among changes of government, plague, and religious fervor of the 17th and 18th centuries in Palermo, Sicily. His work which is only found in Palermo, Alcomo, and Agrigento are wedding cake like confections of white stucco in a banquet of baroque and rococo style, Within the pages the reader will not only discover the descriptions of the oratories, but will also find an intensive melange of intrigue, art history, perfidy, romance, murder and mystery.
