Was staying nearby and went for an afternoon. Canova works are around the globe, but the gipsoteca gives a unique opportunity to be surrounded by them. Canova's process is also highlighted. His rough clay sculptures, an early stage in his process, captured a dynamic nature...More

Antonio Canova brought amazing interpretation to a range of classical, romantic and funerary topics. The museum contains the plaster casts from his studio in Rome which were brought here after his death in the first half of the 1800s. The exhibit is well done and...More

From George Washington through Napoleon, Canova portrayed the greats of his time in exemplary neo-classical fashion. The Scarpa wing, housing some of the collection is...More

Small, but spectacular museum! If you have time check also Tempio Canoviano and there's not far (a 20 min drive) also to La tomba Brion by Carlo Scarpa.

Canova's birthplace is a must for anyone interested in his life and work. You can see the studio where he sculpted and drew, and wander through the house to soak up the atmosphere. The adjacent museum is packed with preparatory gesso sculptures of his finished...More
