Galleria Ca’ d’Oro, one of Rome’s best known contemporary art galleries, located in Via del Babuino just a minute away from the Spanish Steps.
It was established in 1970 by Antonio Porcella, son of Amadore Porcella, one of the most important art critics of the period and the grandson of Alpinolo Porcella, personal friend of great Italian Masters such as Filippo de Pisis and Giorgio de Chirico. Antonio Porcella is a current member of the de Chirico Foundation in Rome.
Today—four generations later—Gloria Porcella leads the gallery. Raised in Rome, Gloria studied at San Diego State University and has worked as a Councilor for the city of Rome where she was responsible for the Cultural Commission, was Head of the Culture Center in Rome, and worked with Italy’s Environmental Minister. Over the years, Gloria Porcella with her business partner Lamberto Petrecca, and the help of Architect Silvia Zamarion has curated several important exhibitions in Italy and in the United States, including “Omaggio a de Chirico” in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, which had aegis of the UN, patronage of Italian and foreign Institutions; and the sensational first installation of the REgeneration Art Project in Syracuse, Italy during the G8 Environmental Summit.
In December 2010, during ArtBasel Miami, the Galleria Ca’ d’Oro Miami opened its doors in Coral Gables with the placement of the unforgettable pink snails, extending the REgeneration Art Project to the United States. Today the gallery continues to bring its experience and expertise to the US, promoting Italian and European art with passion and enthusiasm.
2013 welcomed Galleria Ca’ d’Oro in the prestigious Design District.
