Description

In one of the rooms of Villa Petraia, Florence, in the so-called “studio Fiorenza,” is exposed one of the most beautiful sculptures of the sixteenth century Florentine bronze, the Venus / Fiorenza by Giambologna. The statue used to decorate the fountain of the same name in the garden of Castello villa subsequently transferred to Petraia villa in 1788.
The mold used to execute the bronze work using the lost-wax casting process was produced directly in 1938 by Ferdinando Marinelli Sr., and is currently in the collection of the Fonderia Artistica Ferdinando Marinelli
