Società di Belle Arti

marvels of Italian painting

Over fifty years of passion and energies devoted to the study, valorization, and promotion of 19th- and 20th-century Italian figurative culture. Proven experience which, today, makes Società di Belle Arti a safe haven on the market for the Italian painting of those two tempestuous centuries.

Founded in 1961 by Giuliano Matteucci and now directed by Francesco Palminteri, the organization has by now assumed a leading role as referent for several major museums and foundations as well as for numerous private art lovers, and has contributed significantly to enriching many galleries with authentic masterpieces. The high quality of the works handled by Società di Belle Arti is also much in evidence on occasion of such high-profile events as Point Art Monaco, the Florence International Biennial Antiques Fair (BIAF), and Milan’s AMART and MIART fairs. Three offices in three different cities: Viareggio, Milan, Cortina. In the Lombard capital, activities center mainly on art consulting, while at the historic gallery in Cortina’s Corso Italia, great art meets the public at three annual showings: during the winter holiday season, in February-March, and in summer. At the main Viareggio headquarters, Società di Belle Arti stages monographic exhibitions and historically-oriented collective shows on a periodic basis.

The dialogue with the territory of Versilia has stepped up in the last few years thanks to active collaboration with the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Forte dei Marmi. The prestigious exhibition venue in Piazza Garibaldi – the Fortino, a symbol of the city – recently hosted a series of major shows that attracted the attention of the public and criticism alike. This year, the partnership will be regaling visitors with a retrospective of the work of Giovanni Fattori, undisputed master of the Macchiaioli movement.
