The University of Pisa Collection of Plaster Casts, one of the first Italian ones, opens in 1887 thanks to Gherardo Ghirardini, on the basis of the model given by Germanic archaeology. Nowadays, the collection offers a synthesis of the most famous and significant pieces, from Greek ones to Etruscan and Roman ones, together with less-known and unprecedented pieces and small plastic artifacts: accurate reproductions of classical pieces, housed in various national and foreign museums, or sometimes lost and, also, particular versions of historical restorations or special projects of reconstruction who took place in Pisa in order to give a newer interpretation of those famous works of art. The Collection now hosts a classic archaeology Antiquarium and the Palethnological Collections too.
