I was born in 1985, in a house full of works of art. My grandfather was a gallery owner and so was my father. The first colors I saw, those of the great painters: Genoese, Italian, international.
I walked and spoke with difficulty but, they say, that I knew how to recognize them all. Styles, signatures, techniques: certain things are learned early, if you grow up with them.
They also say that I didn't need the meter to determine the size of a canvas: it was enough for me to measure with my eyes, squeezing them a little.
I always knew that the art it would have been my life and that I would become a gallery owner too, but I wanted to do it my way.
After completing my studies, I went to work in my father's gallery, founded since its in 1967. He dealt only with classical art: masters of the stature of De Pisis, Michetti, Scanavino, Silvestro Lega, Gamberini and many others great artists.
It is from my father that I learned to treat the paintings, clean them, restore them. And it was that kind of contact, so manual, so physical, so material, that made me love art in a different way.
I soon realized that I had to walk alone. Yes, of my own free will I left the family gallery and I opened my own. Online.
I resumed studying, deepening and broadening horizons. Not only by reading books, but also by surfing the net.
I discovered contemporaneity: a world animated by an underground energy that comes from unknown, brilliant artists with enormous potential.
This has been my world for 10 years. More than my profession, my passion is to seek the best internationally. And then convey the thrill of discovery to you.
People who focus on the established artist or who smell the opportunity of a profitable longer-term investment.
What I have learned is that art is never a bet, but a refuge: emotional, cultural, economic. And it never betrays. Let's talk about. Let's meet. I from you.
