the gallery

Founded by Sofia Macchi in 2011, the PUNTO SULL'ARTE Gallery has become within few years a landmark for collectors, at first those based nearby Varese, then for the Lombard area and more broadly for Northern Italy. Its excellence has been rewarded by important recognitions: in 2013 it was already a member of the National Association of Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries, while in January 2016 it made her debut at Artefiera Bologna.

The philosophy of PUNTO SULL'ARTE is to support Italian and international painters and sculptors with a traditional configuration, yet characterized by contemporary sensibility and mastery, which is essential for the Gallery. According to this criterion, Sofia Macchi chose to promote artists like Matteo Massagrande, Alex Pinna and Annalù, who, even sharing the same deeply Italian poetics, have now reached an international relevance.

Indeed, one of the reasons for its success, is its international soul. As a matter of fact, the curiosity for what is moving around the world is a stimulus for fruitful relationships of collaboration with national and foreign Art galleries (from Northern Europe to the USA), within a constant search for the newest and most interesting voices. As it happened for Federico Infante, a young artist from Chile, who was deeply appreciated in New York and arrived at the Gallery in Varese for his European debut. A fundamental way of improving the relationships with artists, professionals and foreign collectors is the assiduous attendance to the main Art fairs, from the aforesaid Artefiera, in Bologna, to Art Verona until St. Art in Strasburg.

Placed in a Liberty building near the centre of city, the Gallery is allocated on two floors. The exposition rooms at street level are usually destined to on-going exhibitions, whereas at the upper level, through a clever and constantly changing set-up, a permanent collection presents all the artists of the Gallery.
