Fabrizio Moretti founded the Moretti Fine Art Gallery in 1999 at the age of 22, according to his latest interview for FT: “I never felt young at the time. I was ready. It helped, of course, to be in Italy. And there was [more] maturity then that is different today, perhaps the world is not tough enough anymore.” Through trial and error his decades long experience has made Moretti a master of the craft, creating one of the finest Old Masters galleries in the world.
The public can enjoy the inaugural exhibition in the gallery’s new space in London on July 1st, which will include the finest Italian paintings and sculptures, featuring works by Sano Di Pietro, Giovanni Baronzio, Nicolo dell’Abate, and Canaletto, for which the gallery is world-famous.
