Frascione Arte was founded by Federico Gandolfi Vannini in 2009; he opened his gallery in via Maggio, in the prestigious Palazzo Ricasoli Firidolfi. The family collection has been managed by four generations, with the business starting in 1893. With great passion, Federico is now enriching and expanding the centenary heritage. The gallery specializes in Italian paintings dating from the 14th to the 17th centuries with a particular attention to the Tuscan school. Attention is also given to more recent works, crafted between the 19th and early 20th centuries, that stand out in view of their artistic and historical qualities. Participation in international fairs such as the Florence International Biennial Antiques Fair and TEFAF New York Fall has given rise to a dense network of relationships with private collectors and prestigious European, American and Asian museums. Thanks to collaborations with seminal art historians, the gallery publishes the series “cahier”, denoting a strong interest in historical and artistic research. Further to this, numerous works are loaned to museums and foundations, such as the bust of 'Carthaginian Hannibal' that was part of the exhibition 'Verrocchio, master of Leonardo', held at Palazzo Strozzi, Florence.
