The Baroque, an artistic and cultural movement flourishing in Rome around the third decade of the 17th century as its highest expression, was moved by the aim to surpass the perfect, smooth figures from the Classical period with more daring, rich and elaborate forms. Exuberance and theatricality, dramatic tension and strong light-and-shade contrasts are distinguishing features of an age inclined to be represented and celebrated gorgeously.
OBVERSE: within a circle inscribed in a five-pointed star, a woman face representing Italy, with figurative elements drawn from the emblem of the Italian Republic: the cogwheel, oak and olive branches. Above, between two points of the star, a towered crown; below the Europa Star Programme logo.
REVERSE: detail from the statue of Santa Veronica by Francesco Mochi mingled with sculptural decorative elements by Bernini and Borromini wich are representative of Baroque art.
