Prometeogallery was established in Milan in 2005 by Ida Pisani.
Located in the Lambrate neighbourhood, where many other contemporary art galleries have recently settled, the gallery aims to promote through solo and group shows the work of international artists, with a particular focus on the new artistic researches from Eastern Europe (Russia, Romania, Bulgaria), Greece and South America. In 2008 prometogallery opened a new space in Lucca, Tuscany, the city that in the early 2000s hosted the Associazione Prometeo, that saw Ida Pisani between the founders.
Coming back to Lucca allows the gallery to exhibit in the stunning space of the former Saint Matthew’s church, where the work of artists like Santiago Sierra and Regina José Galindo was presented for the first time in Italy.
The constant attention towards an art deeply connected to the place of its origin, that is always questioning itself and that doesn’t operate without a relationship with the complex contemporary society, allowed the gallery to build during these years a well defined identity that places it in the international artistic debate with a growing consciousness about the choices made.
