Milan 2012 – Montrasio Arte


Montrasio Arte was founded in Monza in 1939 by Piero and Luigi Montrasio, on Carlo Alberto street. The Art Gallery at that time, presented mostly paintings from 19th and 20th century. Montrasio Arte moved in De Amicis street in 1963, under the direction of Alberto Montrasio In 2001 Montrasio Arte opened a new space in Milan, in Brera street, heart of the city centre, close to the Accademia di Belle Arti, with an exhibition titled Realismi. Since 2005 Montrasio Arte is under the direction of Francesca and Ruggero Montrasio. They are the third generation of Montrasio at the gallery direction. Montrasio Arte organizes between 6 and 7 solo exhibitions per year and several group exhibitions in public and private art spaces, with great success with both public and critics. Since the foundation, Montrasio Arte collaborates with important Museums, national and international Institutions, organizing solo and group exhibitions and lending art works. 
The Gallery is also a publishing company (Edizioni MontrasioArte). The catalogue includes more then 100 titles and about 20 publications for Italian and foreign Museums. 
 In 2007 Montrasio Arte created Harlem Studio Fellowship by Montrasio Arte, nonprofit artist in residence program in New York. Rebuilding the ancient Patron of the Arts Italian tradition, nowadays almost lost. HSF by MA, gave a chance to more than 40 artists, coming from all over the world, to live and work in New York for 3 months, getting involved in the most active art centre in the world. At the end of the residency, with the help of curator Raffaele Bedarida, every artist has to show the work produced. The group shows are a balance of the diverse practice of each author. HSF by MA is a very unique experience, created by a private gallery to promote and diffuse young artists’ works. Most of the artists invited are not represented by Montrasio Arte and have no commercial relation to it. The residency project and the exhibitions have been widely announced and commented in the press in New York and in Italy. Since the creation of the Milan venue, Montrasio Arte has been producing, exposing and promoting young artists’ works, often exhibiting them next to the Master’s works, underlining in this way the importance of continuity and knowledge.
