“Only masterpieces” is the ‘motto’ which guides Tomaso Piva in choosing and appraising art and antique works for his collections. He is few among antiquarians who didn’t surrender to hightened specialization and try to conduct a poli-specialization which goes from old master paintings and sculpture to the historical and artistic context of these works. He looks indeed with passion to Venetian and Lombard furniture, to ceramics, to scientific instruments and to works of art.
Inspired by the Wunderkammer loved by greats collectors of the seventeenth century, this Cabinet of Wonders will be a reference point for those who enjoys the pleasure of collecting or for those who love to surround themselves with beautiful and unusual things, for those chasing a small furniture who has not only practical functions or for those looking for a valuable and curious gift.
The objets selected by Tomaso Piva are all of international taste, as the collections which they refer. If their age, origin, material, function and use are different from each other, all items proposed have in common elegance, value and beauty. Uniques items but not unapproachable.
Piva&C participates in the most important art and antiques exhibitions, including the la Biennale Internazionale dell’Antiquariato di Firenze, Amart di Milano e TEFAF di Maastricht.
