Four Generations of History

The Gallery

Established in Rome in 1878, Antichità Alberto Di Castro is today owned and directed by Alberto Di Castro, the namesake grandson of the founder. While continuing to keep faith with four generations of family tradition, Alberto has more closely focused his expertise, specializing in end-16th century Roman colored marbles. Refusing to be swayed by market pressure, Di Castro has merged a personal passion and a rigorous art historical approach, re-discovering and publishing carefully selected artworks.

The historic gallery, designed by architect Clemente Busiri Vici, is located in the heart of the Eternal City, Rome’s Piazza Di Spagna, 5. When entering the space, visitors are welcomed in a room where artworks hang or stand in front of the original mid–18th century boiserie. Passed a small arch, a long corridor decorated with micromosaics, paintings, marble columns, paintings on stone, books and jewels lead the visitor to the grand salone where more artworks are displayed in an unexpected space.
