The Bozzetti Museum in Pietrasanta was created in 1984 to display sculptures. Since the 14th century, hundreds of years of tradition have linked the town of Pietrasanta to the art of marble. Michelangelo in the 16th century came here to buy marble.
Later, the activities of the marble workshop were attended by artistic bronze foundries and mosaics, stylists and clay magnifier workshops. In recent years, due to the special skills and proficiency of local craftsmen, this symbiosis of handicrafts is still very active and continues to develop. Today’s followers of ancient traditions have attracted sculptors from all over the world. The Bozzetti Museum is located in a sixteenth-century monastery. The museum aims to illustrate the creation and realization of marble and bronze art in order to showcase the lasting value of generations of artists and their works.
