Since 1964 Galleria Valeria Bella has been dealing with old master, modern and contemporary prints, operating both on the national and international market.
In 2008 the gallery added an important department of vintage and contemporary photography.
The main criterion adopted by Galleria Valeria Bella to select the works we offer to our demanding clientele is quality, which defines both the works of the most important artists and those of lesser-known authors.
Every print and every photograph is carefully studied and sold accompanied by a certificate that guarantees its authenticity.
Important illustrated catalogues are published annually.
Located in the center of Milan, the gallery is an important reference point for collectors and scholars.
Valeria Bella is a member of the prestigious IFPDA (International Fine Print Dealer Association) based in New York, a supporting member of Camera Centro Italiano per la Fotografia based in Turin, and a member of CINOA (Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d'Art) based in Brussels

Since the beginning of my activity, in 1964, I have dealt with prints by modern and contemporary European masters.
For this event I have chosen to privilege Italian artists from the end of the 19th century to the present day, with a selection of works by the artists who best represent my idea of an Italian graphic journey through the 20th century, a particularly fertile and dynamic century for graphics.
All the works I present, in my opinion, have a particular relevance, but I would like to draw your attention to three distinct moments.
Boccioni with Gisella and Swan Lake ideally opens the 20th century. Burri and Fontana are great protagonists of the Italian post-war renaissance, while Pignatelli today conjugates in a very personal way the classical world, dear to our culture, with the contemporary of the 21st century.
