Luigi Proietti, did not approach contemporary art in a casual way. He has had to do with art since he was a child: he followed his father (Norberto) in his artistic contacts, especially with Antonio and Ettore Russo who reserved for Norberto the same consideration with which they treated Giorgio De Chirico. The esteem and admiration for his father’s work, however, never distracted him from the careful observation of the artistic panorama of the moment. He demonstrated sensitivity and attitude by opening a beautiful museum in the early nineties in Spello (Pg) where Norberto’s works alternate with the great Italian masters of the twentieth century. He begins to frequent auction houses in Italy and abroad to keep up to date, but commercial development obliges him to have a presence on the national territory. He participates in all major art fairs with stands admired for the quality and importance of the works on display. He opens a gallery in Cortina d ’Ampezzo placing himself in a position of excellence that confirms the many evaluations that see him among the number one of Italian merchants. This does not prevent him from opening another gallery in Venice in 2005, and in any case from following the activities of his father.
