Between the late XVIth century and the middle of the XVIIth century Naples and Messina, two large southern cities and important seats of the viceroyalty, sponsored outstanding festivals and book festivals that may also explain the aesthetical changes of the period. The "Southern Baroque" style was born with different characteristics and features from the Roman Baroque. The images of the festivals use an opulent language in relation to contemporary repertoires of windows and doors which may have contribuited to a progressive change of taste in Spain from the second half of the century and during the last years of Philip IV's reign.
