NOTES Bronze statuette after a restored ancient Roman sculpture in marble from the Farnese collection.

Gennaro Chiurazzi senior set up an art school in Naples and ran the Foundry from 1840, often with sole permission to take moulds directly from the originals, so that the Chiurazzi bronze sculptures provided the closest, most faithful and exact casts. Federico and Salvatore Chiurazzi succeeded their Father in 1895, and the Foundry continued until the outbreak of war in 1939.
