Alessandro Cesati at the 32nd BIAF in Florence

From 24 September to 2 October 2022, in the luxurious venue of Palazzo Corsini, the 32nd edition of BIAF – Biennale Internazionale dell’Antiquariato di Firenze – will open its doors to the public.
Italy’s oldest and most prestigious fair of Italian Art will gather 75 internationally renowned antique dealers that are ready to seduce, with their works, collectors, connoisseurs, museum directors and curators from all over the world.

Alessandro Cesati gallery will participate with a curated selection of important sculptures and rare works of art, displayed in booth 44, located on the ground floor.

Among the most important works, the public will admire a charismatic Head of a Man in bas-relief, recently rediscovered by scholars, achieved by Giovanni di Balduccio da Pisa, who carved it from Candoglia marble during his Milanese phase, around 1330-1350.

The Gallery will also present a rare and fascinating polychrome sculpture depicting the Archangel Michael, attributed to the Master of Spoleto Cathedral: a significant evidence of the most refined Central Italian late Gothic sculpture.


In addition to other sculptures, among which visitors will admire examples of the Apulian Middle Ages, and also the Lombard and French Renaissance, the stand will also feature some precious collectors’ objects, such as a rare gilded Reliquary in the shape of a Book and some sought-after iron objects, witnessing the Gallery’s ancient tradition, such as a particularly fascinating Processional Cross from the 16th century: a perfect example of the unmistakable talent of Spanish iron artists.


We look forward to meeting you in Florence!
