Antichità la Colonna was founded in the heart of the city of Lugano by Achille Papiri, a master antique dealer who dedicated his life to the profession with devotion and passion.
This passion has found a new lease of life in Fiore Belli, the antique dealer who is taking history forward with the same spirit, the same desire to make the company a meeting place for everyone who loves art. A place where you can live art, discuss it, take your time to make a purchase. A place filled with paintings, sculptures, furniture and objets d’art, both antiques and modern-day pieces.
They operate as part of a network of sector professionals, additionally taking care of restorations and bequests.
