Rossella Colombari was born in Turin to a family of prestigious antique dealers. In 1980, she founded Galleria Colombari in Milan and focused her attention on the discovery and research of works by the Italian architect Carlo Mollino.
For more than three decades, Galleria Colombari has dealt with pieces from the most important Italian designers of the twentieth century, such as Giò Ponti, Carlo Mollino, Carlo Graffi, Ico Parisi, Franco Albini, Osvaldo Borsani, Guglielmo Ulrich, Andrea Branzi, Ettore Sottsass and Alessandro Mendini. The gallery has actively promoted their work in national and international markets.

The gallery has more recently begun to expand its horizon by dealing in works by American designers like Paul Evans, Philip & Kelvin Laverne and Phillip Lloyd Powell.
In 2003, Paola Colombari opened the gallery’s Contemporary Art sector, dealing with both Italian and international artists, with a particular attention to the work of the artists, Maïmouna Patrizia Guerresi, Andrea De Carvalho, Bogdar Vladuta, and Matteo Peretti. In 2007, the gallery opened its doors to the Indian art world, working with emerging artists such as Rachana Nagarkar, as well as established artists such as Suboth Gupta.
This year the gallery will be once again exhibiting some of the best artworks the artists they represent created at Design Miami.
