This paper aims to shed light on Girolamo Ascanio Molin (1738-1814), a Venetian patrician who dedicated himself to the creation of a vast but still scarcely explored collection, largely consisting of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities and coins. The paper will consider important manuscripts preserved at the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana and other sources useful to outline Molin’s private life and career. Special attention will be paid to his collection, including the analysis of unpublished sculptures recently found at Palazzo Giusti at Verona, focusing on the role that his ancestors got in its formation and on the personal intellectual network of Molin, that included leading figures of the international art market (from Venice, Verona, Udine, Chioggia, Rome, Vienna).

Abstract

This paper aims to shed light on Girolamo Ascanio Molin (1738-1814), a Venetian patrician who dedicated himself to the creation of a vast but still scarcely explored collection, largely consisting of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities and coins. The paper will consider important manuscripts preserved at the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana and other sources useful to outline Molin’s private life and career. Special attention will be paid to his collection, including the analysis of unpublished sculptures recently found at Palazzo Giusti at Verona, focusing on the role that his ancestors got in its formation and on the personal intellectual network of Molin, that included leading figures of the international art market (from Venice, Verona, Udine, Chioggia, Rome, Vienna).
