The Porcelain of Capodimonte
Until recently, there have only been two institutions in Italy classified as ‘Istituto Raro’ (Unique Institutions): The Antonio Stradivari International School of Violin Making in Cremona, and The Institutum Statuaria Ars Carrara Pietro Tacca IPSAM in Carrara for marble sculpting. Both are extremely exclusive in their own right. The former celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. The establishment of the latter dates back to the end of the 19th century.
