Benedetto Boschetti Workshop

The workshop of Benedetto Boschetti, located at 74, via Condotti in the heart of Rome, has become a must-visit place for the travelers of the Grand Tour by the quality of the art pieces it produced.
Benedetto Boschetti was considered as the most eclectic and certainly the most visionary virtuoso of all marmorari. Active around 1820-1870, the Boschetti Workshop was exhibited at the Crystal Palace in 1851 and was renowned for the outstanding quality of its antique copies.
