the auction house

Della Rocca Auction House was founded in Turin in 1986 and is run by brothers Giacomo and
Guglielmo Fiorio, accomplished antique dealers and refined art connoisseurs. They both have an
over forty-year-long experience in the antiques market and have always cultivated their passion
for antiques, and art in general, of every period and medium.
In 1986 came the decision to found an auction house; so the business officially opened its doors
on 4th December 1986 with an important auction sale of paintings, antique furniture, art objects,
silverware and jewelry, coming from a famed villa on Turin hillside and from important bequests
(such as that of journalist Toniolo) to the Piccola Casa della Divina Provvidenza, a large and
illustrious charity institution based in Turin, also called “Il Cottolengo” from the name of its
founder.

Della Rocca Auction House has always worked with private and religious institutions and assisted
collectors, experts in the field and private buyers in general in acquiring art objects and antiques,
and in selling their works, spanning all the more specific sections: furniture, carpets, old master
and contemporary paintings, sculptures, pottery, majolicas, chinaware, silverware, glassware,
jewelry, of every period and provenance.

Della Rocca Auction House offices and exhibition room are at 33, via Della Rocca, housed in a
prestigious neoclassical building in one of Turin’s most famous and elegant streets in the 19th century
expansion of the city.

Della Rocca Auction House is in one of Turin’s most well-known streets, famous for its richness
and architectural poise, within an austere and elegant neoclassical building, a typical example of
Piedmont architecture.

Inside, imposing vaults and imaginative decorations frame the gallery where furniture, paintings
and art objects are showcased at every auction sale.

Enclosed in a welcoming garden, the Auction House is blissfully closed off from the city noise
while being situated in the heart of Turin historic centre.
