Fodor's Expert Review Museo Canova

Asolo Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

The most significant cultural monument in the Asolo area is this museum dedicated to the work of the Italian Neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova (1757–1822), whose sculptures are featured in many major European and North American cultural institutions. Set up shortly after the sculptor's death in his hometown, the village of Possagno, the museum houses most of the original plaster casts, models, and drawings made by the artist in preparation for his marble sculptures. In 1957 the Museo Canova was extended by the Italian architect Carlo Scarpa.
