Vivioli Arte Antica
Founded in 1992
VIVIOLI ARTE ANTICA antique gallery established in 1992 in the city center, is held by Luca Vivioli, son of Lazzaro, antique dealer in Genoa since 1965.
The deep knowledge in history of art (bachelor’s degree in economics then art studies at V&A and SOAS, London) and experience in private art’s collections brought Mr.Vivioli to develop an exclusive and international taste for antique works of art selected for quality, rarety and provenance.
His main interests are in continental furniture, painting, sculpture and decorative arts from 17th to early 19th century with a special regard to Genoese 18th century furniture masterworks.
Selected Oriental decorative arts and Eastern carpets are also a must in his gallery.
Recently his keen connoisseur’s eye opened to some selections of Modernism and Contemporary art expression to meet the changing taste of his international clients.
