Antonio Canova, genius of neoclassicism


On the occasion of the two hundred years since the death of the sculptor Antonio Canova, various exhibitions can be visited in our territory.

The Antonio Canova Gypsotheca Museum in Possagno inaugurated the exhibition “Canova and pain. The Mellerio steles. The renewal of the sepulchral representation ”, conceived by Vittorio Sgarbi and curated by Francesco Leone and Stefano Grandesso. The exhibition finds its apex in the recomposition, for the first time since their dismemberment, of the two Mellerio monuments, commissioned by Count Giacomo Mellerio in memory of his uncle Giovanni Battista and his wife Elisabetta Castelbarco, after visiting Canova's Roman studio.
