Since 2019, Wannenes has opened an office in Milan, on Via Amedei 8, in the courtyard of the sixteenth-century Palazzo Recalcati, located in the historic Sestiere di Porta Ticinese. In the early eighteenth century, the palace belonged to the prestigious Litta family – one of the most illustrious of Milan’s patricians – and later passed to the Recalcati and Prinetti families.
The Milanese headquarters, directed by Luca Melegati, is home to experts in Silver, Ivory, Icons and Russian Art Objects, Modern and Contemporary Art, Asian Art, Classic & Sport Cars, Ceramics and Glass, Jewellery, Furniture, Sculptures and Art Objects, Carpets and Ancient Fabrics.
In addition to standard evaluation days dedicated to make estimates for the works to be included in the auction, experts and all the staff are available to make:
- Valuation and evaluation of individual works or entire property
- Management of works in private negotiations
- Divisions hereditary
- Appraisals insurance
