Syracuse The works on the Cathedral were completed in two periods and for this reason it presents, according to many, two ornamental styles; the baroque style and the rococo style. The first works began in 1728 and were completed in 1731. Then there was a pause of twenty years and it resumed in 1751, probably this is the period in which the late Baroque gives way to the Rococo style. The facade was completed in 1753. (wiki)
