Cortesi Gallery was founded in 2013 by the Cortesi family specialising in European artistic movements from the 60s to the present day producing relevant displays and collaborating with specialists as external curators, artists' archives and foundations. The first gallery opened in Lugano in 2013 with an exhibition dedicated to Italian Art from the 1960s–1990s. The gallery's expertise with major presentations was featuring the ZERO Group, New Tendencies, Optical, Kinetic, Conceptual and Minimal Art, opening the boundaries to contemporary artists.

In May 2017 Cortesi Gallery launched another space in Milan with an exhibition dedicated to Italian Transavanguardia artist Nicola De Maria.Last year (2020), the Milano gallery moved into a new location sighed in Milano's most historic building. Among the successful exhibitions organised by the gallery, please note 'Heinz Mack: the Breath of Light' curated by Francesca Pola in 2019, the first solo show in Italy dedicated to this artist, with the aim to widely retrace his whole artistic iter, realised in collaboration with atelier Mack. For each exhibition held in Milano or Lugano, Cortesi Gallery has collaborated with Skira Editore for the catalogue's production.

The gallery participates in major international art fairs including Tefaf Maastricht and New York, Artgeneve and Miart; since 2018 is a member of Arte Fiera Bologna's Selection Committee.
