a company in the antiques and antiquities trade present on TV

“In the early 1960s Ivano Costantini moved from Rome to London to join his established antiquarian father and embark on this lifelong experience.

After countless experiences at the international level, in 2000 the company Telearte was founded in Rome, with the intent and mission of introducing and proposing antiques to the general public of commercial television through the instrument of informative telesales.

Furniture, paintings, jewelry, objects and works of art that tell of eras and people. Thanks to the great and deep experience of our staff members, who are proven experts in the field, we are continuously active and looking for business initiatives concerning the art world.”

A circular micromosaic tabletop with a central round view of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican in Rome showing the outstretched collonades of the Bernini designed Piazza di San Pietro, the scene framed with a Greek key pattern border and surrounded by twelve more rectilinear scenes of ancient Roman structures. The table’s gilt border is carved on top with double rows of egg-and-dart pattern, and fluted on the sides between four rosettes. The partially gilded pedestal base is composed of three intertwined dolphins, their heads resting upon a tripod plinth with scrolling acanthus feet.

Telearte was born as a result of a family tradition of antique dealers. The founder Ivano Costantini grew up in contact with the realities of antique shops, spending his childhood in his father’s business who moved to England. So this passon for the “beautiful” is transferred to television, offering art and antiques that represent history. A close eye is also given to a major topic, valuables.

Today with Telearte, we can boast of running a H24 TV channel, on digital terrestrial at channel 128, where it broadcasts its programming with 12 hours of daily live coverage 7 days a week. Thanks to the publishing group(Sciscione Group) with which we collaborate, we are able to have coverage of about 95 percent of the national territory with our channel, in all regions of Italy (Persidera network operator).

We can count, thanks to this infrastructure, on speaking to the 92 percent of the Italian population that prefers to enjoy the medium of television. Telearte’s intent aims to be the reference in the antique and precious antique trade for this audience. Every day we intend to reach out to people in their homes, offering consistently good proposals and always taking the care and needs of our customers to the forefront. That is why we do not fail to always offer advice on everything related to our presentations, activating services today that are increasingly close to people’s needs.
