The use of reproductions in cheaper and easily malleable materials, such as clay and plaster casts, to facilitate the sculptor’s task is very ancient and the establishment of plaster cast galleries accompanied, especially during the nineteenth century, the birth of the major European museums. Among them, the Victoria and Albert Museum enjoys particular importance: his conspicuous collection of plaster casts also includes those derived in 1884 by Edoardo Pierotti from the marble funeral monument dedicated to Gaston de Foix, sculpted by Bambaia and today largely gathered at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan. In this article we try to better clarify the work of the well-known Milanese moulder, son of that Pietro Pierotti who already in 1860 provided Napoleon III the cast reproducing the Winged Victory of Brescia and who in 1872 formed those of the monument of Gaston, currently preserved partly in Brera and partly in the Museo del Castello Sforzesco in Milan.
