One of the most famous sculptures of Italian neoclassicism, the Abandoned Psyche, is a sculpture of white marble, born from the hands of the sculptor Carrarino Pietro Tenerani.
A work purchased by Carlotta Medici Lenzoni and exhibited at the time in the family palace in the Florentine Santa Croce district, the abandoned psyche was admired by artists and writers of the romantic circle such as Leopardi.
Today the work can be admired at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
