Agostino di Duccio: renaissance sculpture

Agostino di Duccio (1418 – c. 1481) was born in Tuscany, but after the first experiences with the famous Donatello, he worked particularly in Umbria and Emilia-Romagna.

But the most important sculptures by Agostino are in the Malatesta Temple (Tempio Malatestiano) in Rimini. In this city of Romagna, the sculptor created the famous reliefs of zodiacal  and mythological figures.
The beaches of Rimini are famous but tourists in the historical center can also see important works of art and archaeological evidence.
In Rimini hotels are numerous and the trip can also be done with air flights low cost (also from Russia).
Sculptures by Agostino di Duccio are also in the Louvre and other European museums.
