The gallery was established in 1993 by the Brusacà family. In 1997, the Brusacàs decided to renovate a spacious building right on the main square by the sea. The renovation was focused to recreate a perfect balance between the natural light and the artificial light. The goal was to give the observer the chance to see the paintings in the best light that can be achieved by controlling electronically the light’s intensity. The gallery measures 200 square metres and has more than 50 square metres outdoors on the famous “piazzetta” (literally small square).There is also a terrace above the gallery, which is accessible from an indoor stairs that looks like that of a ship, made of teak with a rope handrail. Just behind the gallery is a showroom used for avant-garde exhibits. Franco Brusacà manages the gallery, together with his daughter Francesca and his son Daniele. Marilina Ottolina is the curator. The group works in perfect synergy, complimenting their best skills. The gallery permanently features the artwork of the most well known Italian contemporary painters and sculptors. Franco, Francesca and Daniele are also talent scouts, searching for new artists to exhibit their best artwork in the gallery to their international clients visiting Portofino.
