M45. The Living ARTroom in Milan

M45 is a real living room where exhibitions are set up and direct advice on art matters is offered.
Within an intimate and shared space, we love to host anyone who wants to be surrounded by beauty with a unique and personalized experience.

A new space with a long story to tell

In the M45 logo there is the whole history of this location.
Between the M and the 45 a cut: a line divides and breaks.
The cut recalls the works of Lucio Fontana, who right here in via Manzoni 45, in the then Galleria del Naviglio – a hotbed of avant-garde – exhibited for the first time and presented his concept of “spatialism”.
Within the logo, both an historical address and a graphic element referenced and which represents the “meeting line” of the two owners.

The passion for art is our most important experience

The dream of creating a shared space that could welcome all those who love to collect works of art was born from the experience of two professionals.

Marco Bertoli

Art Advisor, expert and art dealer since 1984, is the owner and founding partner of the consulting firm Art Consulting, based in Modena and New York.

Since 2005 he has collaborated with the Christie’s auction house in New York and London and with other important national and international auction houses, for ancient and contemporary art and for collector’s items.

Angelo Enrico

Inheriting the business from his father Franco, who in 1972 opened a small gallery in Alassio, together with his brother Serafino he followed the family business from a young age, opening a second gallery in Genoa and a third in Milan.

An expert in ancient art, over the years he has acquired a strong specialization in the Italian nineteenth century, also thanks to his own library which today has more than 15,000 volumes.
