The art auction house with the soul of a collector

The art auction house with the soul of a collector

We are a family-run auction house, based in Brescia (Northern Italy). Perhaps the small size of our company is our biggest advantage, as we are able to provide our clients with tailor-made assistance throughout the entire buying and selling process.

Specialized in figurative art, our focus is on modern and contemporary art. We act as direct intermediaries between the seller, who decides to entrust us with his works, and the buyer, who, understanding their value, purchases them safely and easily during our auction sessions or private negotiations.

Those who rely on us recognise our passion, appreciate our professionalism and modus operandi, which concentrate on quality rather than quantity.

Our history

The Foundation

Martini Studio d’Arte was born as an exhibition space at the beginning of the ‘90s, thanks to the initiative of Paolo Martini, who transformed his passion for art into a real profession, founding an art gallery.

Paolo showed his interest in artwork at the age of 15, when, working for a framer in Brescia, he came into contact with the first paintings.

His love for art, his ambitious personality and his desire to emerge made him stand out: he began selling his first lots independently right from the start.

From art gallery to auction house

Over the years, his experience and contacts grew exponentially, as did his collaborations with some important Italian auction houses.

The sales volume was so high that Paolo came up with the idea of transforming his wonderful art gallery into a dynamic auction house.

This became reality on 12 June 2006, the date of the first auction.


In order to satisfy market needs and deal with the constant changes of technologies, Paolo now works with his three sons, Giovanni, Angelo and Michele. They inherited from their father the idea that trust, transparency and honesty are fundamental to build lasting relationships with clients.

Today Studio d’Arte Martini has become a point of reference for art lovers. Our auction house has achieved important successes over the years thanks to the specialization in modern and contemporary art, the multi-year experience in the sector, the strategic use of the web and social media, and the qualified staff, who guarantee a high standard of service.

We have always selected works that can never be taken for granted and with which you fall in love at first glance.
