Canova’s workshop has café tables amongst stunning marble sculptures, and offers cocktails and assorted drinks, as well as tasty titbits.
Sculptor Antonio Canova signed a contract in 1818 to ensure that this property, in the heart of the old artists’ quarter, would remain an atelier for sculpture. The master’s wishes were respected until 1967: the workshop passed through many generations of the Tadolini family, descendants of Canova’s favourite pupil and heir, Adamo Tadolini. Now refurbished as a museum-atelier, Canova’s workshop has café tables among its stunning marble sculptures and a refined old-world feel: dark hardwood floors, wood-beamed ceilings, chandeliers and mustard-yellow leather banquettes and chairs. The small bar offers cocktails and assorted drinks, as well as tasty titbits, from canapés to cookies and pastries. The restaurant serves from noon to 11pm daily, but we recommend sticking to the café.
