The Stanza del Borgo was founded in 1967 by Liliana dal Pozzo, Silvana Bareggi's mother-in-law, and was one of Italy's first galleries to specialize in Old Master Drawings. The gallery has exhibited at Florence's prestigious Mostra Internazionale dell'Antiquariato from the very earliest years of the fair. Directed by Silvana Bareggi since the 1980s, the gallery has broadened its areas of interest beyond drawings to include Old and Modern Master Prints, small-format paintings and Japanese prints. Silvana Bareggi's great passion - derived from her study of art history - prompts her to organize every year, exhibitions accompanied by illustrated catalogues. The catalogues contain scholarly entries with contributions by Italian and foreign scholars, and provide exhaustive and up-to-date bibliographic references.
Stanza del Borgo specializes in works by the principal Old and Modern Masters, among them: Dürer, Schongauer, Rembrandt, the Tiepolo family, Goya, Piranesi, Fattori, Pissarro, Whistler, Signorini, Picasso, Chagall, Gauguin, and Morandi.
Beginning in 2010, the gallery started to offer woodblock prints and drawings by major Japanese artists. The Ukiyo-e Masters, ranging in date from the 17th to the 20th century, include works by Harunobu, Koryusai, Hiroshige, Hokusai, Utamaro, Kunisada and many other artists. The gallery's interests extend also to Shin Hanga prints. In addition, important Surimono and Shunga collections have been assembled over the years.
The Stanza del Borgo has exhibited at the most renowned prints and drawings fairs, among them: New York's IFPDA Print Fair;
Milan's l'Internazionale dell'Antiquariato; Florence's
Mostra delle Stampe Antiche e Moderne at Palazzo Corsini, and Milan's Mostra del Libro Antico.
The gallery is a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA),
with its headquarters in New York; CINOA; the Association of Antiquarian Book Dealers, and the Society for Japanese Arts.
Rigorous standards guide the enterprise in regard to the selection, quality, and condition of the artworks.
