Carlo Teardo Story

Carlo Teardo was born in Venice, where after a lot of experiences related to artistics movements he found out “The Antique” through a Venetian's Antique. At first, Teardo collected some poor things but through several exchanges, sales and purchases, he discovered his own vocation: living among antiques things and base his life on them. The pleasure of possessing rare and quality objects and the research of antiques ones have always been the reason and the aim of his activity. Slowly Teardo reduced his activity sphere and he concentrated it on European silver and ivory, collectibles objects and Russian icons. The research and study of these last items has marked Carlo Teardo's activity, who can be considered as the Italian pioneer of the archaic and primitive art of The Icon. Furthermore thanks to his studies, he contributes to collect art works which belong to private and public collections.

The merchant

In 1968 Teardo moved to Milan, and together with a partner he enters the “Antique” market by selling his objects to antique dealers. In 1980 and by himself he sets up a shop in Maggiolini Street and than he moved to Turati Street, where he founded “The Antiques”. Since 2001 the Gallery has been opened in Santa Marta Street, in the middle of the medieval city.
