When Art Is in Your Blood
For four generations Gloria Porcella’s family has followed an artistic and cultural path in Rome. Here Gloria tells us a little about her cultured childhood, her subsequent career in Europe, and her decision to open the Ca’ d’Oro Art Gallery—founded by her father Antonio—also in Miami and New York.
“When I was a little girl, my father, Antonio, often took me to Piazza di Spagna, to the home of Giorgio De Chirico, a rather unusual and eccentric man. I remember their long encounters in that beautiful house, the view of the piazza… That ancient Rome that once belonged to the great artists like De Chirico and Guttuso doesn’t exist anymore.”
