Founded by Sofia Macchi in 2011, the art gallery PUNTO SULL'ARTE in Varese has established itself as a bench mark for collectors within the last few years. Its excellence has been rewarded by important acknowledgments: in 2013 it was already a member of ANGAMC, the National Association of Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries, while in January 2016 it made its debut at Artefiera Bologna.

Placed in an Art deco building near the centre of the city, the 4850 ft² Gallery space is allocated on two floors. The exposition rooms at street level are destined to on-going exhibitions, whereas at the upper level, through a clever and constantly changing set-up, a permanent collection presents all the Gallery's artists.

One of the reasons for its success is its international soul. As a matter of fact, the curiosity for what is moving around the world is a stimulus for fruitful relationships of collaboration with national and foreign Art galleries (from Northern Europe to the USA), always pursuing interesting artists from all over the world like Silvia LEVENSON (Argentina), Brian Keith STEPHENS (USA), Federico INFANTE (Chile), Kyoji NAGATANI (Japan), Jernej FORBICI (Slovenia), Johannes NIELSEN (Sweden).

Sofia Macchi’s Gallery, however, is strongly marked by the discovery and promotion of Italian artists with contemporary sensibility and mastery. According to this aim the founder has chosen artists such as ANNALÙ, Claudia GIRAUDO, Matteo MASSAGRANDE, Alex PINNA, Silvio PORZIONATO, Matteo PUGLIESE who, sharing the same deep Italian poetics, have now reached an international relevance. The passion for its territory has pushed the Gallery to take part in urban renewal initiatives, such as the project Cabine d’Arte made in 2018 in partnership with Wg.Art Association and the Municipality of Varese.

In 2020, despite the uncertainties caused by a year of health, economic and social emergencies, PUNTO SULL’ARTE embraced a new challenge opening a second Gallery in the historical centre of Varese, at Via San Martino della Battaglia 6: a new oasis for Contemporary Art, a second point of reference not only for art collectors but also for all those who feel the need of surrounding themselves with Art.
