MARIA NOVELLA ROMANO
• MATTIA ROMANO
We are siblings, grown up in a family of art dealers, today in its fourth generation. We have been collaborating with our father Simone since 1999 at the Galleria Ottaviani in Florence, founded in 1969 and located in the elegant and prestigious Piazza Ognissanti.Here we deal with collectors, connoisseurs, art enthusiasts and experts favouring paintings, sculpture and works of art.
We started specialising in Master Drawings in 2005 and since 2011 we have participated in the most important International art fairs such as the Biennale Internazionale dell’Antiquariato in Florence, Master Drawings in New York, the Parisian Cercle des Beaux-Arts Rive Gauche and we exhibit annually at Alexandre Piatti’s gallery in Rue de Lille.
We curate the publication of detailed drawings catalogues with the collaboration of the most respected scholars and art critics.Grateful to our great grandfather Salvatore whom in 1946 donated a Museum to the city of Florence (Fondazione Salvatore Romano), and to our grandfather Francesco, we follow the family tradition according to its canons and spirit.
We count among our clients Museums, Foundations, private collectors, both Italian and International.
