Baroque Valencia (1619 - 1648)

Before a balcony on Cavallers street, in the house of the bookseller Vicent Franco, the conversations and events of baroque Valencia play out, marked by the grave consequences of the expulsion of the Moors. The parade of Corpus Christi that passes below the balcony is a good example of the ceremony and artificial aesthetic that characterized this century of crisis. Extreme religiosity is the cause of conflicts and disturbances. Years later, in 1648, the most serious epidemic of pestilence looms over Valencia, leaving misery and death in its wake.
