Libero Andreotti, considered by modern critics to have been the most important sculptor in Italy in the early 20th century, was born in Pescia in 1875. His sculptures and paintings can be found in public and private collections throughout the world.
The museum, opened by the town of Pescia to celebrate its illustrious citizen in 1992, offers an itinerary through what was his production of plaster casts, carried out before their final translation in sculptures in bronze and marble. Forms of a traditional beauty, which, in spite of their showing an academic approach, are carried out with the profound natural spontaneity that dominates the wide range of subjects explored by the artist, creating a sort of common link between suffering and joy, hard work and enjoyment.
The monumental production is arranged on the ground floor of the museum, while second floor houses a collection of works whose formal results are of great significance. They include Le nouveau n, where two hands hold a new born child aloft, a special moment in his domestic life and also symbol of life, and the Dancer with the Mask of Medusa, a synthesis of movement that does not exasperate the forms.
The Plaster cast Museum is housed in the Palagio, the ancient seat of the Podesta. The first nucleus of the building dates from the 13th century. Reconstructed in the 15th century, it underwent a whole series of alterations between the 18th and the 20th centuries to better adapt it to its changing uses over the years. The restoration carried out before opening the museum was aimed at returning the earlier environment, as closely as possible to the original layout prior to the various alterations.
