Florence and Venice had dominated the art world during the Renaissance but Rome became the artistic centre in the Baroque Period. Baroque style appeared in Europe in the late 1500's - the word baroque comes from the Portuguese word meaning "irregularly shaped pearl" - and was used in art to describe something which was different from Renaissance Art - ornately decorated, dynamic and filled with emotion. Music of the Baroque era reflected these same ideals.
