Especially we will explore the collection of plaster models of the ancient artworks kept in the studio, which includes interesting casts from works by Michelangelo, Canova, examples of classical statuary, curiosities and lesser known works. Then we will approach the ancient technique of the cast with a brief introduction to techniques and materials.
