    The genius of the Italian Neoclassical sculptor finds a new renaissance in the US thanks to the cooperation of three exceptional New York City institutions. On the occasion of the unveiling of a full-size plaster copy of the original sculptor of George Washington displayed at the Frick Collection, the Italian Cultural Institute is showing a rare collection of Canova’s tempera paintings capturing mythical dancing figures. At the same time, the Consulate General of Italy hosts the photographic exhibition, "Antonio Canova," by Fabio Zonta.
