The Romanelli were a family of highly prolific sculptors in Florence during the 19th Century. Born in 1856, Raffaello Romanelli (d.1928), the son of Pasquale, exhibited in the major Italian salons as well as in Paris and London. The workshop of Raffaello and his son Romano continued the lofty reputation first established by Pasquale. Raffaello's chief works are the equestrian statue of Garibaldi in Siena, and the Charles Albert monument in the Quirinale, Rome. His works, mainly genre, historical and classical scenes, can now be found in museums such as the Palazzo Pitti in Florence.
