Gipsoteca Giulio Monteverde (TEMPORANEAMENTE CHIUSA)

Temporarily closed This collection is the result of many donations and has some 30 works in plaster, clay and terracotta by the artist along with a large photographic display of his work, many of which were taken by the artist himself. Completing the exhibition is a collection of prints from the period and a learning centre for the preparation of works in plaster. This gallery is dedicated to the Italian sculptor Giulio Monteverde (Bistagno 1837 – Rome 1917) who, in the final decades of the 1800s, confirmed his position as a portraitist and cemetery sculptor of note. His work heralded a realistic language with softened tones that found its voice in the early years of the 1900s, characterised by expression rather than manner.
