Weekly Auctions of Exceptional Items
Sant'Agostino Casa d'Aste SRL
The St.Agostino auction house and art gallery has been established by Pier Carioggia in Turin in 1969, the address of the first location ( via S. Agostino 5 ) suggested to Piero the name to be given to the gallery. During 1977 then Pier Carioggia started his cooperation with Giorgio Circossa who pretty soon became a share holder of the company. The cooperation went on for more than 30 years until Giorgio unfortunately passed away in 2007. In 1963 the two friends moved the gallery from via S.Agostino to C. Siccardi n° 15 and in 1993 to the actual facility in C.Tassoni 56. It is worth to mention the exhibition which has been organized for the inauguration of the C. Siccardi location , named “the giants of 900”, which exhibited a large number of masterpieces of XIX century, among many others few De Chirico of 920 years, including “Les jeux terrible” of 1925, the famous “Risveglio dela bionda sirena” of Scipione, few Savinio and other works of Sironi, Morandi, De Pisis, Rosai, Campigli, Carra etc. Also for the opening of the C.Tassoni location, which was chosen to get enough room to have the auctions in house, S. Agostino organized the exhibition of the works of Bonzagni which was showing almost all the important paintings of the great master, who has been one of the subscriber of the first “futurism notice” The first auction in the new facility was the 44th and did take place in may 1993. As from than S. Agostino has growing constantly, selling more and more works of great interest like the extraordinary “ingegnere” of Sironi, sold for € 450.000, during the 84th auction of Nov, 17, 2003. Even if the core business of S. Agostino is always the works of 800, 900 and contemporary art, lately the auctions have included antique art, antique furniture, design, watches, jewels and silverware with a good success in term of sold lots as well as prices. During their 40 years of activity the S. Agostino has sold more than 40.000 pieces of art also because they guaranty authenticity of the works any time. Moreover S. Agostino is always a art gallery and as consequence they sell also privately and organize exhibitions like it was done for Mino Maccary, Sergio Unia, Friz Baumgartner, Claudio Nicoli, Mattia Moreni, Enzo Prestileo, Arturo Carmassi and Hermann Nitsc.
