Considered by his contemporaries to be the greatest living artist, Antonio Canova was celebrated as the one who had brought sculpture back to those sublime heights that were believed to be only due to classical statuary. Witness of a period of great historical and political upheavals, the humble stonemason from Possagno conquered the international art scene, competing with the greats of his time and contributing to the recovery of masterpieces through important diplomatic missions.

The man, the artist, the collector, the diplomat are the many aspects brought to light for the first time by this exhibition with which the Civic Museums of Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza, custodians of one of the collections of Canova’s works and documents large and important in the world, they pay homage to the greatest sculptor of the neoclassical era on the bicentenary of his death. About 140 works including sculptures, paintings, drawings and precious books, some of which presented to the public for the first time, guide the visitor on an ideal journey in the footsteps of Canova, from the creative universe of his atelier to the great capitals of the old continent, to discover the episodes and encounters with the characters that determined the course of his life and of European history.

In Bassano del Grappa, in the province of Vicenza, until 26 February 2023. Bassano can be reached from Vicenza and from our Relais Santa Corona in about 40 minutes by car.
