Walter Padovani’s gallery has been located in the heart of the fashion district in Milan since 2000.
Sin dagli esordi l’obiettivo è quello di diventare un punto di riferimento per il collezionismo privato e per le istituzioni, con la specializzazione nell’ambito della scultura e degli oggetti d’arte italiani dal Cinquecento al Neoclassicismo.
The strategic guidelines of the activity are a rigorous selection of the works proposed, with great attention given to their provenance and state of conservation, as well as a close collaboration with leading art historians. Over the years, thanks to new discoveries and restitutions, as well as to the publication of the gallery’s catalogs, it has been possible to write some small, albeit significant, chapters of art history. In parallel with research, the gallery also provides indispensable services in the context of Old Masters art, including estimates, appraisals and assistance for the practices at the Export Offices of the Superintendencies and for the handling and restoration of works of art. The Galleria Walter Padovani exhibits regularly at prestigious Italian and international exhibitions such as BIAF and TEFAF.
