La Galleria

After completing a degree in Composition and gaining valuable international experience, notably in Boston and Los Angeles, Mattia De Luca turned his passion for art into a profession upon his return to Italy. In 2018, alongside Sergio Casoli, he inaugurated his first gallery, which would become the Galleria Mattia De Luca two years later.
The Galleria specializes in significant works by great masters of the twentieth century belonging to an established artistic historiography. With a rich program of exhibitions, publications and projects, the Galleria Mattia De Luca maintains an international and innovative identity within the traditional context of Rome’s historic center.
Located in Piazza di Campitelli, between Piazza Venezia, the Theater of Marcellus and the Ancient Jewish Ghetto, the Galleria is located in the historic Palazzo Albertoni Spinola. The building was commissioned by the Marquis Baldassarre Paluzzi Albertoni (1599-1653) to the architect Giacomo della Porta (ca. 1540-1602) and then to Girolamo Rainaldi (1570-1655). Passed first to the descendants of the Altieri family and later to the administrator of the heritage of the Royal Crown of Spain, Manuel Godoy y Álvarez de Faria Rios Sanchez Zarzosa (1767-1851), the Palace became the property of Cardinal Bartolomeo Pacca (1756-1844), author of one of the initial edicts concerning the safeguarding of artworks and monuments within the Papal State in 1820.
Upon the Cardinal’s death, the palace remained within his grandchildren’s possession for five decades. It was sold in 1886 to Countess Carolina Portalupi (1852-1891) who undertook restoration works, and later inherited by her direct descendants, the Genoese Marquises Spinola, who retains ownership of the property to this day.
