Origin and History:

Prometeogallery was born in 2005 in Milan on initiative of Ida Pisani. Founded in 2005 in Milan and fitted out since 2008 with a Tuscan branch in Lucca, Prometeogallery is a gallery that promotes a vision of art that, besides being intimately linked to the place of origin, questions its own value and doesn’t forget its relationship with the complexity of contemporary society. A particular attention is dedicated to new artistic researches of Eastern Europe (Russia, Romania, Bulgaria), Greece and South America. The choice of Lucca as second branch, besides the possibility of using the striking space of the Ex Church of S. Matteo, comes from the fact that Lucca witnessed the birth of the AssociazionePrometeo at the beginning of 2000. The association was engaged in the support of politically and socially committed expressions of the international art scene, with a particular interest for the art of Latin America and of the peripheries of the world. Ida Pisani was among its founders. The association decided to open a commercial space in Milan – Prometeogallery - precisely with the aim of facilitating the entrance in the European art market of the artists that belong to the more radical art trends of the developing countries.
