The Cardi Gallery was founded in Milan, Italy, in April 1972 by Renato Cardi. Originally named ‘Galleria Cardi’, it focused on fostering the work of contemporary Italian artists. In the late 1960s Renato Cardi started to presciently collect works by artists like Cy Twombly, Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni and Michelangelo Pistoletto, all relatively unknown at the time. Over the subsequent years Renato built a distinguished collection focused on Arte Povera and Spatialism.

Now led by Renato’s son Nicolo, the Cardi Gallery continues to shape the cultural landscape in Milan and abroad. In 2015, it opened its first overseas venue, expanding its presence to London’s Mayfair district, the epicenter of the European Art Market. Both Cardi London and Cardi Milano host regular museum-quality exhibitions that are accompanied by a scholarly catalogue or an artist monograph often featuring texts by eminent critics such as Germano Celant, Francesco Bonami and Achille Bonito Oliva. The Cardi Gallery’s unique specialist expertise in Italian Modern, Post-War and Contemporary art – specifically in Arte Povera, Minimalism and Zero Group – has contributed to building some of the finest private collections across Europe, the Americas and the Far East. The Cardi Gallery annually exhibits at the top international art fairs.
