Description : The City Museum include the deposit of the ancient collection of plaster casts of the Accademia Virgiliana

In 2004 after a careful inventory, all casts were taken from scholastic locations in order to reunite them in the Duke’s Palace and restore the city’s plaster cast collection. The collection, composed of 231 pieces, is currently conserved in storage at the Musei Civici. As with the logical value of the artistic heritage, a nucleus of works pertaining to the plaster cast collection was recently restored and is now displayed at the City Museum.
