Baroque Art in the land of Savoy
In the 17th and 18th century, the land of Savoy experienced an unprecedented wave of church construction. It’s the peak of the Baroque art. By visiting some of these sites, the documentary aims to provide different and complementary keys to better understand this yearn for spiritual elevation which has always been a part of human history. The ambition of this film is threefold: first and foremost to show the beauty of these churches and of this land; but also to try to explain why mankind, ever since Lascaux, has always wanted to emphasize one way or another its relationship to the sacred; and lastly to show through a symbolic prism that what’s in front of us isn’t always what’s to be seen.
