Art Director, Founder @ Galleria Orlandi – ITALY
After having worked more than 20 years in fashion, as a consultant for luxury brands and for her family company, in 2002 Rossana decided to extend her passion for design as a private collector into an innovative gallery, a platform to
showcase her personal taste and her eye for quality. Rossana uniquely combines design and art in her iconic gallery in Milan – via Matteo Bandello 14. She also curates exhibitions in Italy and abroad. Her talent in researching and discovering young upcoming artists and designers worldwide has made her a design icon.
Rossana Orlandi has innovated the way to present design and art, creating a dialogue between different styles. The gallery hosts an eclectic collection of international design pieces, limited editions of renowned contemporary designers and emerging artists that she personally selects. Opened in 2002 in a former tie factory, the 19.000 square foot building developed around a picturesque courtyard, has maintained its original aura.
During the Milan Design Week, Rossana Orlandi Gallery hosts more than 35.000 visitors.
