Born and raised in Venice, it was in the lagoon that Alberto Vianello began his career in the world of antiques and auctions in particular, collaborating with Semenzato immediately after graduating in Classics at Ca' Foscari University. At the well-known Venetian auction house he had the opportunity to meet the most important collectors and to confront himself with the most famous Italian and international antiquarians, organising and curating in first person some of the most important auctions held in Italy in the years around 2000, one of which was the historic sale of the estate of the famous Florentine antiquarian Carlo De Carlo.
Since 2014 he has been working with Pandolfini in Florence, where he directs the departments of Furniture and Art Objects, Porcelain and Majolica and that of Sculpture, sectors in which the Florentine auction house has succeeded in conquering the consolidated role of market leader in Italy, with particular success in the field of Renaissance majolica, which in Florence in recent years has had its most successful sales at an international level.
