The second phase of the programme will include the online publication of catalogued items, especially decorated earthenware and porcelain.

The sculpture collection of the Early Modern Era Department is quite diverse in terms of quality, dates and materials. Most of the sculptures, both large and small-format, are made of stone, wood, ivory, wax or bronze. The project will focus on monumental sculptures and complete their catalogue by investigating historical sources and preparing high-quality technical and graphic documentation.
