The Galleria Michelangelo

Galleria Michelangelo was founded in 1967, in the ancient suburb of Saint Alessandro  in Bergamo , by the artist Vittorio Bellini  and his wife Margherita.  Having always been passionate about art , they decided to display artwork  ranging from ancient  to contemporary .

In 1975 Galleria Michelangelo moved to a bigger location in via A. Locatelli. Approximately 10 years later the three daughters, Manuela, Raffaella and Beatrice, who grew up with the same passion and sensibility for art as their father, decided to work alongside their parents in the gallery, which has now expanded and requires new resources.

Vittorio Bellini’s frequent travels within Italy and abroad, enabled him collect and study important antique paintings, as well as to meet artists and art critics.
