The story of Telearte begins in Rome in 2000 out of passion and infinite love for the world of art. It is a story told through the continuous discovery of furniture, paintings, objects and works of art that tell of ages and people, a continuous stimulus for our professional growth. A growth that already begins with the great and deep experience of our collaborators who are expert connoisseurs of the subject with proven international competence and dedicated to daily research.

The desire to open a window to the world through television was the springboard for the company to establish itself as a leader in the sector.

Ivano Costantini

CEO & Senior Manager

Co-founder of the company, has for years had a deep knowledge of antique silver that binds him to the high antiques market. Passed down from father to son, the secrets of this world have traveled the streets of Rome, London, New York, places where Mr. Costantini was able to work, grow professionally and collaborate with big names in the sector. Returning to Rome in the early 2000s, he decided to channel his working knowledge into “Telearte”, a company that is still a leader on the Italian art market. By promoting over time a channel dedicated to teleshopping through which, every day, antiques excellence is shown, the company has managed to reserve a decidedly important following over the years, surrounded by a constantly updated team that studies and deepens all our sectors; passing from ancient jewelery to less recent signatures, to antique silver, important paintings and rare objects of virtue. Everything is based on constant updating and professionalism thanks also to a network of collaborators, Italian and non, consolidated over time which therefore allows a constant look at the international market.
