Studio SALES di Norberto Ruggeri is located on the third floor of a late 19th-century building in the central Esquilino district, the heart and symbol of today’s multicultural Rome.
The building was originally the Royal Academy of Belgium in Rome; its current apartments have been created inside the former ateliers where artists chosen by the Belgian crown were hosted in the wake of the Grand Tour. The space of Studio SALES, with its huge window overlooking the park of Piazza Dante and the historical Palazzo della Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, is still today a privileged location for artistic activity, thanks to its particular and intimate atmosphere.
In over twenty years of activity, the gallery has presented many exhibitions dedicated to Italian and international artists, different in their specific leanings, origins, age and the formal typology of their work. It has presented, for the first time in Italy, many artists who later aroused the interest of critics, receiving great acclaim, high recognitions and important international awards.
The gallery continues to operate along these principles with the intention of orienting collectors towards the acquisition of works that over time can increase their artistic and economic value.
