2010

Chimera, Archaeological Museum

As the original Etruscan ‘Chimera’ was sent to the United States, the Superintendence and the Archaeological Museum of Florence asked the Marinelli Foundry to make a mould on the original work. The “identical” cast was placed at entrance to the museum.

2011

Wild Boar repairing

The “Porcellino” (Wild Boar) fountain is one of the symbols of Florence and it is a tradition to stroke its muzzle. As the number of tourists increases, and therefore the number of strokes, the work has markedly eroded. The Marinelli Foundry, which cast the current “Porcellino” in 1998 replacing in 2011 the 19th century version, offered to restore it. It was not possible to utilize the three-phase current necessary for the electrical welding on site, so therefore the traditional method of oxyacetylene welding was used producing excellent results.

2013

Quinto Martini for Hermitage

The works of Quinto Martini came back to Russia, where they were exhibited on several occasions in the context of temporary exhibitions.
On May 24, 2013 five sculptures of the Tuscan artist have become part of the collection of the Hermitage Museum, the largest museum in the world.
The sculptures, chosen by Sergey Androsov, one of the world’s leading experts of Italian sculpture and Director of the Department of Western European Art of the Hermitage and cast by Ferdinando Marinelli Artistic Foundry were placed in the rooms of the palace in the context of massive exposure permanently dedicated to the best of Western sculpture of the twentieth century.
