Когда искала информацию о кентавре на фонтане Таормины, то обнаружила нелестные отзывы о стиле барокко (http://taorminese.livejournal.com/320551.html)   . В книге Френсис Элиот "DIARY OF AN IDLE WOMAN IN SICILY" в описании Катании тоже встречается неодобрение "Barocco has a "faux air" of the cinquecento, deformed and exaggerated into burlesque. Such as might be the graceful carracoles of a racehorse, compared to the ungainly antics of a mule. People tell me Barocco is picturesque; so is a red brick wall, or a cupola, scaled with coloured tiles. I hate shams.
Now Barocco is the apotheosis of shams, invented by artists who, without power to create themselves, ape and distort the creations of genius. Not even the fact that the Cathedral was founded by my favourite, Count Roger, can reconcile me to it."

Первое мнение из книги за 1902 год, второе из книги за 1882.

Мне кажется, сейчас этим стилем можно только восхищаться.
