Bust Of Minerva

Plaster representing helmeted neck brace.

Gipsoteca Di Milano The Fumagalli & Dossi gypsotheque has a long history. In 1927, when the famous Vallardi gypsotheque closed, two former craftsmen, Gariboldi and Bertolazzi, kept part of the vast collection, thus creating their own gallery. Since then, the workshop in Viale Montello 4 in Milan has gone through the years, passing from generation to generation. Today, Fumagalli & Dossi produces workshop plasters for art schools. Our cast comes from the first part of this story and is dated to the 1930s. A small lack at the base.
