Alessandra Di Castro
European Works of Art and Sculpture; Old Master Paintings
Alessandra Di Castro comes from an old Roman family of antique dealers who have been doing business in the Italian capital since 1878. Today, the Galleria Alessandra Di Castro is a focal point for Italian decorative and fine arts stretching from the ancient world to the Grand Tour and focusing on Roman classicism throughout history. After a successful joint exhibition at the Academy Mansion in New York City in 2015, the Galleria Alessandra Di Castro forged a partnership with the Galerie Kugel and the Galerie Brimo De Laroussilhe and since 2016 has been sharing a showroom with them in Madison Avenue, where the three galleries hold several exhibitions every year in conjunction with the city’s art calendar.
The entrance to the Gallery gives onto Piazza di Spagna. From the doorway to number 4, a concealed courtyard leads the visitor into the secluded rooms of a historical 17th century palazzo housing old masters (primarily of Italian schools), sculptures, marbles, semi-precious stoneworks and rare objets d'art. Most of the artworks on display come from private collections. The Galleria Alessandra Di Castro also assist its customers with purchases or sales and to provide art historical research, estimates and expertises; it is also available for consultation in matters relating to collections and inheritance.
