The Alessandro Cesati gallery specialises in European sculptures and works of art from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. Parallel to its founding and constant passion for iron and metalwork – a field the gallery is renowned worldwide for – Alessandro Cesati has been extending its spectrum of interests into the most varied niches of collecting for quite some time. Ivory, coral, wood, marble, stone, tortoiseshell and terracotta are just some of the many materials handled today by the gallery, which carefully selects items in such materials on the basis of quality, rarity and curiosity. Thorough assessment and study of the works are often carried out together with international scholars and experts, characterising the commitment and professional competence that the Alessandro Cesati gallery places at the heart of its business. The Alessandro Cesati gallery exhibits regularly at TEFAF Maastricht and at the Florence International Biennial Antiques Fair
