The Goffi Carboni Gallery pays a particular attention to Chinese and Japanese oriental art. This passion has, from the beginning, led to it being one of the very few galleries in Italy to frequent this specialist international market and its auctions and is one devoted to all the manifestations of oriental decorative art. Chinese and Japanese furniture, Chinese porcelain and paintings, ukiyoe, Chinese and Japanese lacquers, bronzes, pieces of ivory, cloisonné and enamels are among its main areas of interest.
