The chalks of the 'sculptor narrator' find space in the rooms of the Palazzo del Palagio. A visit to the Gispoteca Libero Andreotti, located in the Palazzo del Palagio in Pescia, is an experience to try. Set up in 1992 thanks to the donations of his children, the museum collects the entire artistic biography of the sculptor from Pescia, testifying his happy relationship with the city that gave him birth. A relationship rebuilt over time, since the works were all actually realized in the Florentine studio of the artist. Over 200 sketches, models and monuments, saved by the family of Libero Andreotti, who after the death of the artist and until his arrival in the Palagio had great difficulty in preserving them. The Gipsoteca is divided into three floors: on the ground floor there are numerous preparatory sketches and models for the monuments of Bolzano and Milan and the majestic Pomona, lying on a bed of fruit. The large rooms of the second and third floors collect numerous models made in the early decades of the twentieth century. Andreotti draws with full hands from the Etruscan and Greek repertoire, without neglecting contemporary European artistic
experiences such as the ones of Rodin, Bourdelle, Medardo Rosso and others. Here the sculptures depicting dancers carry the visitor on a stage of a Russian ballet; the fruit saleswoman, the cherry tree and the fisherman in the suburbs of the cities where Libero Andreotti lived, like Paris and Florence.
