The Gallery "Il Castello" was founded in 1964 in via Ciovasso in Milan, and since that time it has been exhibiting the artworks of the most important Italian and non-Italian artists of the 20th century.
In 1968 the gallery was moved into via Brera 16, located in the Brera district, which is one of the most evocative in Milan, once populated mainly by artists and bohemians. During that time, the gallery was focused on the contemporary art and Avant-garde artists of the ‘60s, thus, it was exhibiting artworks of Ottone Rosai (1968), Filippo De Pisis (1968), Felice Carena (1969), Felice Casorati (1970), Victor Vasarely (1973), Ardengo Soffici (1979) and Mario Sironi (1980). At the end of the ‘80s, Adriano and Marcello Conte, sons of the founder of Il Castello Guido Conte, started to display artworks of artists, who were distinctly important for the 20th century, such as: Gianni Dova, 1997, Giulio Turcato, 1999, Roberto Crippa, 2000, Ennio Morlotti, 2002, Piero Dorazio, 2003, Joan Miró, 2006, Lucio Fontana, 2007, Giuseppe Capogrossi, 2008, Victor Vasarely, 2009, Andy Warhol 2011, Keith Haring 2011, Damien Hirst, 2013, Armando Marrocco, 2014, Mimmo Rotella, 2014, Marrocco – Eielson, 2015, Sebastian Matta, 2016. Today, while remaining faithful to its long history and tradition, the gallery continues to display collective and solo exhibitions.
