Artist's Description

This is the Duomo in Ortigia, the old part of Syracuse, Sicily. The facade is a superb example of Baroque architecture. According to Wikipedia, the word duomo derives from the Latin word "domus”, meaning house, as a cathedral is the “house of God”. Hence, Duomo is a generic Italian term for a cathedral. A Duomo may be either a present or a former cathedral, the latter always in a town that no longer has a bishop nor therefore a cathedral. Such churches are usually simply referred to as “Il Duomo”, without regard to the full proper name of the church.
