Department of Ancient Ceramics and Porcelain
Under the direction of Giuliana Gardelli, the department deals with ceramics, majolica, porcelain attributable to a period that, starting from the Middle Ages (archaic ceramics), covers the entire Renaissance, Baroque, 18th and 19th centuries.
Its staff awaits the study, cataloguing, evaluation and placement on the Italian and foreign markets of ceramics and porcelain on consignment, both for the enchanting trade and in the form of private negotiation (private sale), the latter for pieces of particularly high economic and historical artistic value.
The department also offers a specialist appraisal and technical-scientific analysis service.
At the department there is always a selection of ceramics and porcelain in various price ranges that can be purchased out of auction.
Art historian and archaeologist, Giuliana Gardelli is known for her numerous studies that have brought new and original contributions to the history of Italian majolica.
She has to her credit over 160 publications, including fundamental "ITALIKA. Italian Renaissance Majolica. Saggi e Studi" (Faenza 1999) and "L'eredità di Michelangelo e la "Pietà" ritrovata di Andrea Bregno" (Rome 2006).
Since 1983 he has worked as a surveyor for archaeology and art history in Italian courts and prosecutors' offices and is a consultant for ceramology for public and private institutions.
