A Possagno, at the wish of his brother-in-law, His Magnificent Eminence Bishop Giovanni Battista Sartori Canova, a Museum and Gipsoteque were born, collecting the original chalk templates for Canova’s sculptures, from the artist’s Roman studio. Nearby you can also visit the birth home, the Temple, the parish church of Possagno, wanted and entirely funded by Antonio Canova and later become the place of his burial.
