About us

The history of Capitolium Art

The Casa D’aste Capitolium was founded in 1988 by Rudiano Rusconi in the prestigious Palazzo Cigola Fenaroli Valotti in Brescia.

In 2008, after twenty years and forty auctions selling exclusively ancient art, the company underwent a structural overhaul and changed its name to CapitoliumArt.

The auction house opened a Modern and Contemporary Art section, directed by Gherardo Rusconi, while Ancient and 19th Century Art continued to be managed by Giorgio Rusconi. Over the years, new departments have been added: Design in 2011; Islamic and Oriental Art in 2016; Jewellery, again in 2016; Murano Glass in 2018; and Africa and Oceania and Luxury & Collectibles in 2020.

 

In June 2019, the Turin branch was inaugurated with an anthological exhibition dedicated to the masters of the twentieth century including Enrico Castellani, Alighiero Boetti, Afro Basaldella, Rammelzee, Aldo Mondino, Giorgio De Chirico and Alberto Burri.

One year later, we opened a logistics center in Ospitaletto, a 3,000 m2 warehouse used for goods storage, collection and delivery.
In September 2021, we opened a new branch in Rome, in the historic Trastevere studio belonging to the late painter Mario Schifano in Via Delle Mantellate 14/b.

Our sites

Since its foundation, Capitoliumart has been based in the ancient Palazzo Cigola Fenaroli Valotti in Brescia. The warehouses are located a few miles away, in the municipality of Ospitaletto. To meet the needs of transferors and buyers, we opened two other branches in Turin and Rome.
