ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the international diffusion of Italian sculpture during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. According to the author, the overlapping movement of Italian artworks to the U.S. and American artists to Italian cities such as Rome and Florence ensured that Italian sculpture became a worldwide cultural influence. It is suggested that this exchange of artists and artworks was a significant factor in the development of a shared Euro-American identity.
