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

Many examples of the plaster worked preliminary work for some of Canova's masters A good trip 1 hour from Venice, ensure you also see the temple.

This is an excellent museum of the plaster casts underlying Canova's masterpieces that are dispersed throughout the museums of Europe. 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.
