Canova Museum

The great neoclassical sculptor and painter, Antonio Canova, was born at Passagno in the province of Treviso on 1 November 1757.  The Possagno museum is dedicated to Antonio Canova and displays a complete picture of the sculptor’s art and life: statues, plaster cast models, sculptures, reliefs, preparatory drawings, paintings, sketches, and his work tools all tell us his story of a life dedicated to art and beauty. A lively, innovative venue, the museum is one of the most popular in Veneto.  You can visit archives, libraries, and the study centre as you explore the ‘Canova complex’.
