Bonhams are delighted to announce the auction of The Contents of Count and Countess Martignone's Milanese and Genoese Properties.
A Noble family from Como whose history can be traced back to the 13th century, Count and Countess Martignone were well known for their legendary entertaining with leading figures in Italian society from prime ministers and politicians to Popes and even the last King of Italy, Umberto II.
Their love of art and antiques was well acknowledged, which they collected and sourced throughout the world, manifested in the spectacular contents of their Milanese apartment and villa in Pieve Ligure, positioned in the heart in the Italian Riviera.
The contents of these two properties include a wonderful selection of Italian and French furniture, European works of art and sculpture, old master paintings, English and Continental silver, ceramics, Asian works of art and garden statuary.
