History and the beginnings. Our gallery was established in 1970s by our parents, who had a history of collecting. We grew up visiting the main trade exhibitions: in addition to Palazzo Strozzi and the first elegant Biennial Fairs in Milan, we still have fond memories of shows in Cortona and Todi. When we were kids, we were lucky enough to spend time with many antique dealers all over Italy. We witnessed the game of antiques, which gained momentum in the 70s and 80s: majolica, pieces of furniture, stone or iron objects, they were all linked to the Haute Époque dream. Specialisation We initially focused on Medieval and Renaissance majolica, an ancient family passion, participating in the first historic editions of the International Biennial of Ceramics in Faenza. Then we took different specialisations: Valerio chose furniture and wooden sculpture, while Giovanni preferred Italian still lives. In this field we accomplished pivotal initiatives, such as the exhibitions called Il trionfo della Natura (a journey through Italian Baroque still lives) and I fiori di Francesca (Francesca's flowers) (the first exhibition dedicated to the painter Francesca Vicenzina). With the help of the most renowned scholars, we have grown in the search for increasingly rare and important objects. We are lenders to cultural exhibitions and some of our works have been acquired by museums. We never wanted to specialise in a single genre: common denominators of the objects we deal in are quality and taste. Over time, the pleasure of research has taken over from the desire to possess. We take part in the most prestigious Italian exhibitions, including the Florence International Biennial Antiques Fair and Modenantiquaria.
