About us

Alessandro Cesati gallery, founded by Fiorenzo and Alessandro Cesati, specialises in European sculpture and works of art from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth century.

The gallery is located in the heart of Milan, a few steps from the Sforza Castle, in the most antique part of the city near to important historical buildings such as the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio and the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie and the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci.

Drawing on a strong family tradition, marked by excellence in the fields of art and music, Alessandro Cesati gallery has been nationally and internationally renowned, for nearly forty years now, for the careful search and selection of artworks based on quality, rarity and curiosity criteria: from the original and still active specialization in metal and ironwork, up to various materials such as ivory, coral, bronze, marble, stone, wood, wax, tortoiseshell and terracotta.

Thorough assessment and study of the works are often carried out in conjunction with international scholars and experts, distinguishing commitment and professional competence that the Alessandro Cesati gallery places at the heart of its business.

Among its customers, the gallery includes important international collectors and some prestigious museums, such as the Uffizi Galleries in Florence, the National Gallery in Washington and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

In addition to the brokering, buying and selling of works of art, the gallery offers estimates and expertise, advice for restoration, cataloguing, displaying, and assistance in handling all import and export documentation.

The gallery has been participating for more than thirty years now in the most prestigious European art fairs in Europe such as TEFAF Maastricht and the Biennale Internazionale dell’Antiquariato of Florence.

Alessandro Cesati is member and counselor of the Associazione Antiquari d’Italia and member of FIMASyndicat National des Antiquaries and CINOA.

Dicono di noi

“Non fatevi ingannare dal titolo; storia antica dai Cesati, ma non tanto quanto quella della Cultura di Golasecca (ossia dell’italica Età del ferro). La passione di famiglia risale almeno al bisnonno paterno, cultore d’arte e collezionista…”

Marco Riccòmini, May 2021

Cesati&Cesati. L’età del Ferro


“The quality of the photographs sets your publications in a category above most anthologies. Despite the difficulty of accurately dating such artifacts, (…) the professionalism and scholarship of your research will serve as a benchmark for years to come. The clarity of the written text is so rare in this day and age! There being nothing else of this quality on the market to compare, you have created “bibles” for the subjects you address, an amazing accomplishment.”
