sinopsis

This is the first study to characterize the architectural patronage of Cardinal
Pietro Ottoboni (1667-1740), and to identify twelve architects during his half
century of patronage in his Ecclesiastical court of the Cancelleria. Most eminent
among them were Filippo Juvarra and Domenico Gregorini. Commercial and
private theaters in the palace are located from archival data, room
measurements, drawings, diary accounts, Correspondence of the French
Academy, and palimpsests of architectural details. The size, shape, appearance,
capacity, and location of Filippo Juvarra's theater are discussed. Archival
documents are cited to reveal why, how, and when it vanished. Detailed analysis
is devoted to Juvarra's stage construction with its elaborate sets and moving
apparatus. In his official function as Vice-Chancellor of the Church, it is well
known that Ottoboni was positioned as a major patron of music, theater, and
painting in late Baroque Rome. He was a librettist for oratorios performed by his
resident composer, Arcangelo Corelli, and by Alessandro Scarlatti in venues in
the palace, and in his basilica of San Lorenzo in Damaso, located in the palace
grounds. His resident painters included Francesco Trevisani and Sebastiano
Conca. He completed the construction of Bernini's Confessione in the nave of his
basilica. As the sponsor of the Arcadian Academy, Ottoboni dictated taste in
Roman cultural circles. His involvement in the competition for the façade of St.
John Lateran is amplified. A grand overview is provided for the cardinal's
commission of devotional machine constructed to rival the Lenten carnivals. As
ephemeral constructions, and normally ignored liturgical phenomena, these are
explored in detail for the first time.
