Luis XIV by Bernini

The original sketch of Bernini’s Louis XIV, now at the Galleria Borghese in Rome, was brought to Florence to the Fonderia Marinelli in order to make a bronze cast for Mussolini’s private collection. Mussolini had personally commissioned the work to Marinelli during his visit to the foundry on April 21, 1934.
