Bazzanti Art Gallery
The Bazzanti Gallery hosts a collection of sculptures from the 19th to the 21st centuries. Along with precious original 19th and 20th century marbles and works by artists and copyists who have continued the craft of Pietro and Niccolò Bazzanti, there is a unique collection of bronzes fusions realized by Fonderia Ferdinando Marinelli according to the ancient technique of lost wax casting. The bronze and marble sculptures are reproduced from the original casts of Antique and Renaissance masterpieces; 19th and 20th works are realized from the casts the Foundry has acquired over the years directly from the artists who frequented the Foundry and from contemporary artists who continue to rely on Fonderia Marinelli to fuse their bronze works. The large collection of Classic and Renaissance plaster casts (‘gipsoteca’) molded after original works and the 19th and 20th century sculpture models are among the treasures of the Foundry.
The Gallery includes reproductions in alabaster, in semi precious stone as well as sculptures and fountains in ‘Pietra di Vicenza’ (the same stone Canova employed for his sculpture group “Orpheus and Eurydice” in the Museo Correr, Venice), which is a very suitable for gardens and other outdoor sites as it hardens over time when exposed to air and water. The Gallery offers small scale versions, table sculptures and miniatures ideal for interiors; mosaic tables and objects for house furnishins. In addition to offering works for sale, the Gallery provides design and interior decoration services for internal and external spaces; basins, fountains, customized sculptures and castings.
