1963/65 Francesco Berarducci (1924) and Alessandro Fioroni (1926/80)
In the courtyard in front of the entrance bronze sculpture “The dying horse” 1966 by Francesco Messina (1900/95)
“Although not always understood by the more modernist Italian critics, Messina led an aesthetic journey with inner security and self-consistency. Cocteau, in an exemplar essay, tracked down even in his more outlined works the Mediterranean substance of his sculpture, characterized not so much by figurative similarity, as by that particular vibration with which he solved the modeling, without ever sculpting deformed figures or yield to the risk of caricature” (Rosanna Ruscio - Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani Treccani)
