Saint Uberto in Venaria Reale: a case study in the International Baroque network
The church by Filippo Juvarra at Venaria Reale is taken here as a case study in the dense network of relationships arose in the international phase of Baroque architecture, the early Eighteen Century. In this context, new perspectives can take shape on apparently well-known works. In particular, a remote dialogue between Juvarra and Fischer von Erlach can be detected in reference to the two-level chapels common to the Venaria church, the Kollegienkirche at Salzburg and the Karlskirche at Wien. More important is to pay attention to distinguish direct relationships from parallel processes, in order to outline a history of Italian architecture in an European context.
