Event image
This exhibition explores the fascinating chapter of counterfeit art through the masterworks of Cremona-born Alceo Dossena (1878 – 1937), formidable creator of sculptures in the style of the ancient Greeks and Etruscans, as well as the great Italian masters of the fourteenth century and the Renaissance.

In addition to the evocative works of Dossena are those of Giovanni Bastianini, the most famous statue counterfeiter of the nineteenth century; Federico Icilio Joni and Umberto Giunti, who specialised in imitating the Italian “Primitivi” of the 14th and 15th centuries; right through to those created in protest by sculptor Angelo Froglia and as a joke by Pietro Luridiana, Pier Francesco Ferrucci and Michele Ghelarducci, creators, in 1984, of the prank involving the heads attributed to Amedeo Modigliani.
