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.
