Situated at the heart of Florence, between Palazzo Strozzi and Santa Maria Novella, the Galleria Moretti was open to the public, and to major public and private collectors, on September 1999 with the inauguration of the exhibition "From Bernardo Daddi to Giorgio Vasari" and immediately distinguished itself by its specialization in Italian, and especially Tuscan, old masters.
In pursuit of the promotion of great Italian painting, a new gallery has been opened to the public in London. Situated in the heart of London in St. James's, Moretti Fine Art acts as a reference point for collectors of Old Masters of the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries who search a reserved and discreet approach to exhibiting.
Within the shadow of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in the heart of the East Side, the new seat of Moretti Fine Art is open to the public from October 2007.
