Sketches Museum Pierluigi Gherardi
Ranked #3 of 27 things to do in Pietrasanta
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Sneak into the library and view the models of a number of sculptures that have promonence world wide. We recognised a few from our travels to Canada etc - and best of all free. There is a sculpture trails around Pietrasanta at the moment by some famous (and not so) artists that takes you all around the town which was worth the trip.

Lots of them, from abstract modern to realistic portraits, these are all models of larger sculptures. Somehow having them all together in a few connecting rooms, all of an approachable size, almost all pure white, makes the sculptures come to life more than they would in full size and spaced apart in a sculpture garden. It's hard to explain why these "bozzetti", if that's how you spell it, are so interesting, but they are. When we visited, there was also an exhibition mostly around the main square of the town, called Lapidarium, of a large collection of gigantic stone and metallic sculptures of horses where part of the body was just bones. Some of the sculptures are horses heads only, displayed suspended inside the darkened church...a bit eerie. All fascinating.
