ABOUT

Gate 5 Gallery was created in 2012 by Céline Marcato in Monaco.

Céline comes from the Publishing market, and entered the design world as a collector. After several years of collecting, she decided to open her own gallery in Monaco.

Gate 5 Gallery is specialized in Historical Italian Design, covering the three periods of Italian Modern Design history; the 30s – 50s, years that established the fundamentals of Italian design, the 50s called Modernism, and the 70s, Postmodern period of Radical Design.

Simultaneously, Gate 5 Gallery develops contemporary projects with leading designers, who are invited on-site to create and develop exclusive collections, whose themes are the result of a cooperation between curators from the contemporary art world, artists and Gate 5 Gallery.

Gate 5 Gallery is blurring the classic way of a Design Gallery to develop projects by organising shows in private houses, promoting pieces at international fairs and collaborating closely with renowned architects, interior design studios and other art galleries.

Location

The gallery offices are located in Monaco, a strategic location to attract international collectors from around the world. The gallery also has a showroom space in Rome to welcome the clients and exhibit collections.

THE TEAM

Rossella Peruzzi

Rossella Peruzzi is specialized in Italian design and decorative arts between the 20’s and 70’s. In 1988, she opened Gallery P21 in Rome, before founding Galleria Babuino Novecento and Galleria O. Roma. She has done some research on Gio Ponti’s production (Gio Ponti Oggetti di design, exhibition and catalogue, Galleria babuino Novecento, Roma 2007), Fontana Arte (Fontana Arte, Luci e Transparenze, exhibition and catalogue, Galleria Babuino Novecento, Roma 2006) and Ettore Sottsass (Ettore Sottsass, una collezione 1959-1974, exhibition and catalogue, Galleria babuino Novecento, Roma 2008). She also edited a collection of gold jewellery designed by Enzo Cucchi (Giu la piazza nessuno, Mare che sei nostro, Le case si riempiono a metà, exhibition and catalogue, galleria babuino Novecento, Roma 2008).

Céline Marcato

Céline Marcato fell in love with design thanks to her friend Rossella Peruzzi. Céline started to collect design through Galleria O. Roma before deciding to finance and promote the activity of the gallery. After 5 years of collaboration, Céline opened her own place in Monaco. She has been organizing and promoting the Collection Baroco Roccoco by the Campana brothers, and is behind the exhibition Dangerous Luxury in Montecarlo at the Jardin d’hiver. Convinced that vintage and contemporary design should be combined, she is also behind the project Modern meets Contemporary: A serie of exhibitions, in collaboration with 11Columbia in Montecarlo, to sensibilize the public to the importance of design and the harmony between modern and contemporary. Her private villa in Roquebrune is the perfect example of artists and designers she collects; it is also the place where she invites private collectors and clients for dinners in company of artists.

Justine Despretz

Justine Despretz first graduated in International Law in France in 2012, then decided to specialize in the History & Business of Contemporary Art Market, where she graduated from the University of Warwick in 2015.

Roma during international fairs and left Europe for Middle East where she worked for Gregory Gatserelia, a renowned international architect.
