Unlike other galleries, the Goffi Carboni Gallery has always devoted itself to art as an international phenomenon rather than one limited to local or Italian forms of expression. It has always taken a lively interest in the artistic manifestations of countries such as France, England and Holland, such countries being the source of several of the objects it displays. Italian, English, French and Dutch furniture as well as clocks, bronzes, chandeliers, drawings, watercolours and oils on canvas are all dealt in together with antique prints for decorative or collection purposes.
