I AM AN
Born and raised in Tuscany, I spent my formation years between Pisa, New York, and Milano, where I currently live.
I hold a master’s degree in Modern and Contemporary Art History from the University of Pisa, where I focused my studies on twenty century Italian sculpture and photography.
I began my career in the arts in New York as A researcher and independent curator, to then make stride in the art market world.
Over 10 years of diverse professional experiences in the fine arts, I built a long-standing relationships with top international art galleries, museums, collectors, auction houses and private dealers.
In 2017 I established Teresa Meucci Fine Arts, an independent art advisory service based in Milano, specialized in 20th century international art. The year after I was thrilled to be taking up a new and prestigious role in Germany: I was appointed Modern and Contemporary Art Specialist by the historical Auction House Karl&Faber in Munich, for whom I work with great enthusiasm to built a strong representative office in Milano
I AM A
I’ve always been very instinctive with my career choices and in 2011 I decided to create something new on my own. In addition to my work as art expert, I funded APDA, a Milan-based firm specialized in fine art traveling in Italy for Museum Friends and Patrons Circles. While I was living in New York I discovered exceptional art travel agencies working only for Museums, creating for their major donors high level content art trip programs. Then I thought, why not making the same in Italy, putting my deep knowledge of the arts here at disposal of prestigious museums associations, becoming their main reference point in my Country? I started concentrating my work in Tuscany, the region I come from, at the narrow Umbria, to then extend my tours in other Italian areas with an exciting contemporary art and architectural scene: Sardinia, Milano, the Alps region (Bozen, Trento), Venice and its surroundings.
Thanks to my excellent relationships with artists, museum professionals, galleries, critics, academics, and collectors. The result is uniquely crafted custom tours that will give your group an insider’s experience of Italian culture, and its people, along with personal connections to its art world.
