Longari Arte Milano was set up in Milan in the early 1950’s by Nella Longari, a historic and influential figure in the Italian antique world. The art gallery is still at its same central location in Via Bigli.
Primitive Italian sculpture has been the area, in artistic and antique terms, that has been of most interest to the gallery over the years. Apart from this particular area, the gallery has also specialised in illuminated fragments and works of art from the 13th to the 16th centuries. Mario and Ruggero, Nella’s sons, as well as her grandson, Marco, have kept this love and enthusiasm alive along with a passion for study and research in the field of art.
