YESTERDAYTo visit Galleria Gagliardi on your trip to San Gimignano, use our San Gimignano trip planner .
Galleria Gagliardi was established in 1991 in a large space measuring 400m2 which was once used as a garage and farm machinery store; a space which now bears absolutely no resemblance to the original building, apart from a section of the floor made up of oak boards covering a hole which once enabled repairs to the underside of cars and machinery in the absence of a ramp. This small work of art, created by the previous owner, Dino Conforti, has been purposely left in his memory.
Year after year since 1991, the gallery has undergone numerous transformations: the exhibition area has been extended and improved and important changes have been made in order to exhibit works which improve constantly in terms of quality.
Today we can say that the gallery has become an extremely important cultural reference, among the most complete for the permanent promotion and sale of contemporary art; it has without doubt the largest selection of Contemporary Art in Italy. Every work is always subject to a scrupulous selection process, with every piece chosen directly in the studios of the artists with whom we work, constantly encouraging them to perform research, renewing their approach and improving their skills in order to present works of the very highest quality. The best ceramic sculptures, conceptual, abstract and figurative paintings, bronze and marble sculptures, as well as works in steel, iron and wood, are presented by artists of national and international acclaim, offering an impressive, exceptionally selective art collection.

I'm not much of an art lover, but I'm sure this nice little gallery can be of an interest to the art lovers. When I entered I just walked and walked and the little turned to be quiet long. I seen a lot of different beautiful art pieces that curled down the long corridor of this ancient building. Nice place to visit.
A beautiful gallery of modern art in a beautiful medieval town. I could not find the works I admired most on the web site.
