Who we are, in a few words

The Giamblanco Gallery was born from the shared passion for art of the spouses Giamblanco in 1993; Dottoressa Deborah Lentini and Prof. Salvatore Giamblanco, both graduates from the Academy of Fine Arts (Turin for Deborah and Venice for Salvatore). Professor Salvatore Giamblanco currently teaches painting at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti di Torino. Dedication to the study of the painting, the life of the painter when possible and the materia is the underlying force that always united the spouses. Together, they discuss the most plausible attribution for every single painting that they analyse; whether it comes from a private collection, or it belongs to their gallery. Following their own careful analysis of the artwork, they will obtain further confirmation from an expert historian, before they produce a factsheet and description of the artwork itself, ensuring that anyone wishing to view, study, or buy the artwork, will receive the maximum guarantee in the information provided.

From 2013, the Gallery has published different catalogues guaranteeing the scientific quality of their work.

The partnership


The partnership between the spouses Deborah Lentini and Salvatore Giamblanco begins in 1993 in Via Montebello 34, Turin. It begins as a partnership in the restoration and sale of ancient paintings. In 1997, the spouses move to Via Michele Schina 15, always in Turin. But, beyond restoring and selling ancient paintings, what accompanies the couple is the passion and care of one who appreciates art itself. In the pursuing of passion, they started their own research of beauty   visiting art fairs in Italy, travelling to France where they became well-known collectors between the famous art markets of Avignon, Beziers and Montpellier and they started to participate in art fairs in Turin, Saluzzo and Parma.

By 2002 the couple opened a Gallery of ancient paintings at Via Maria Vittoria 36/E, Turin. It is here where they began to create descriptive and technical artwork fact sheets with a photo and historical references. They continued to participate in the above-mentioned art fairs, as well as in Brescia and Modena. Passionate as they are about art, they get to meet many historians and art-historians who often passed by their Giamblanco Gallery to appreciate or analyse an exhibited work of art.  As their network of art-related professionals and collectors grew during the years, soon, they decided to publish catalogues that would transform their passion into a more serious and scientific affair. In 2013 they published the first 2 catalogues of the Giamblanco Gallery, which coincide with the Giamblanco Gallery’s move to its new location in, Via Giovanni Giolitti 39, Turin, close to Piazza Cavour.

As of today, April 2021, the Giamblanco Gallery has realised 6 catalogues, in addition to the FLASH BACK 2019 catalogue, produced for the fair.

They are currently preparing their next catalogue, which should be published by the end of 2021 and the beginning of next year, 2022.
