The Art Gallery Marletta is in the perfect meeting point between art and antiques, that is, between the Pitti Palace, the former residence of the Grand Duke and the King of Italy, and today a treasure chest of seven museums, and Via Maggio, a historic street of Florence chosen as a showcase for the most prestigious antiques from the nineteenth century through today.
The Gallery is located in the historic palace of Ridolfi Guidi, who hosted the illustrious pair of poets Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning; English writers were among the first foreigners to settle in the city. Today, the palace hosts Casa Guidi a museum which recalls their life and works.
The Gallery was founded in 1958 by Pino Marletta, an art and antique dealer and restorer whose passion and curiosity continues through his son Alessandro. The search for quality and uniqueness of the works is the main goal of Alessandro, the results of which are honored by national and international institutions that acquire works from the Gallery.
The strong passion and the continuous study of art history, as well as the collaboration of Alessandro with serious and prestigious specialists enables the gallery to offer genuine originals from the Renaissance through the twentieth century. It is the quality of the art that has allowed Gallery Marletta loyal clients from around the world.
