La Storia


Galleria Imperiale sells gifts, furniture and antiques, dating from 1700 to the last century. Silver, carpets, old paintings and contemporary art. Inside you can find works by Schifano, Chiari, Luzzati, and many other painters. Galleria imperiale was founded in 1978 by Raffaele Mengoni, father of the current owners, as an auction house.

After a few years, from auction house it was changed to directly sell the gallery's pieces. Many journalists and writers have written of the Galleria over the years, while many photographers have taken pictures of it as an original example in field of antiques.

Trivia: Princess Margaret of England during his visit to Genoa in 1993, curiously, broke the ceremonial and went to look around inside the Galleria Imperiale.
