Sandro Morelli founded his gallery in the historic Via Maggio in Florence in 1980, the antique dealers’ road, creating a job out of his passion. Ever since the beginning, his main interest resided within medieval and renaissance art, with a focus on sculpture; over time he became a point of reference for enthusiasts and collectors. His research meant he chose beautiful, but especially interesting works of art, which could convey the essence and the values that are hidden within their creation. Despite no specific legacy or family business to count on, his is a true, innate vocation and his many personal studies have made Sandro Morelli a responsible, well-esteemed expert.
