• TORNABUONI ART
    FLORENCE, CRANS-MONTANA, FORTE DEI MARMI, MILAN, PARIS

     

    Tornabuoni Art was founded in 1981 in Via Tornabuoni, Florence, thanks to Roberto Casamonti’s passion for art, an interest inherited from his father who was a collector of 20th century Italian art.

     

    The exhibition activity is developed in the different galleries by organizing an annual exhibition aiming at presenting a selection of works by the leading international artists from 20th century – such as Christo, Jean Dubuffet, Hans Hartung, Wifredo Lam, Matta, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Serge Poliakoff, Andy Warhol – together with pieces by the most important Post-War Italian artists like Giacomo Balla, Alighiero Boetti, Alberto Burri, Enrico Castellani, Mario Ceroli, Giorgio de Chirico, Piero Dorazio, Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, Marino Marini, Giorgio Morandi, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Paolo Scheggi among the others.
