Museo-Atelier Canova Tadolini

Museo-Atelier Canova Tadolini Review

A gorgeous remnant of Rome's 19th-century artistic milieu, this is the former atelier of Antonio Canova, Europe's greatest Neoclassic sculptor. Fabled for his frostily perfect statues of antique goddesses and fashionable princesses (sometimes in the same work, as in the Galleria Borghese's nearly naked Principessa Pauline Borghese posing as a "Victorious Venus"), he was given commissions by the poshest people. Today, his studio—atmospherically crammed to the gills with models, study sketches, and tools of the trade—has become a caffè and restaurant, so you can ogle Canova's domain for the price of a very expensive meal (or a cheaper coffee at the bar).
