Sculptor Walter S. Arnold is a busy man.

In addition to his own studio work, Arnold started the American Friends of Italian Monumental Sculpture to help restore the magnificent marble sculptures at Staglieno Cemetery in Genoa, Italy.

The monumental cemetery of Staglieno in Genoa, Italy is the largest outdoor sculpture museum in Europe and houses the finest collection of late 19th and early 20th century Italian marble sculpture.
