The room of models. Restored sculptures from the Museo Ginori

The restored models of the Manifattura Ginori di Doccia are the protagonists of this extraordinary exhibition, housed in the newly restored rooms at Villa La Petraia from 21 December 2021 to 21 June 2022.

The collection of terracotta, plaster and wax models from the workshops of various Florentine artists, begun in 1737 by Carlo Andrea Ginori with the aim of creating a collection of samples to crate porcelain sculptures, is the oldest part of the collection.  A group of these restored models is the protagonist of the exhibition, enriched by videos showing the interventions carried out on the works on display: true works of art that allow visitors to better understand the modus operandi and techniques of the Manifattura's artists, as well as the more technical and lesser-known aspects of their conservation.

The exhibition is organised by the Direzione Regionale Musei della Toscana - Villa medicea La Petraia, with the Fondazione Museo Richard Ginori and the Associazione Amici di Doccia, with the contribution also of Unicoop Firenze and thanks to the fundraising promoted in 2018 by Artigianato e Palazzo.
