It was in the year 1990 that three friends, Lorenzo Fiaschi, Mario Cristiani and Maurizio Rigillo, decided to open a gallery in a quite unexpected location, far from the big cities and smoothly running art circuits – in San Gimignano, a town steeped in history and somehow out of time, in the heart of Tuscany. Over these 25 years of activity, generosity and altruism have formed the basis for numerous and multifaceted artistic collaborations. The aspiration to write a history of the present which, through creativity, can nourish the tie between past and future, between individuals and between different geographical areas led Galleria Continua to become, in 2004, the first Italian gallery to open in China with a programme of international artists. In 2007 came another challenge, to bring back to life a fascinating but completely abandoned and forgotten place like Le Moulin. Since then, this historic factory at Seine-et-Marne, in the countryside near Paris, has evolved not just into a venue for showing large-scale works but also into a space devoted to culture, experimentation and multi-disciplinary meetings that have given rise to unexpected synergies between international galleries. Since 2011, two large spaces have also been active in the ancient paper mill of Sainte-Marie, just one kilometre from Le Moulin de Boissy, housing major monographic exhibitions by artists from around the world. A pioneering spirit and a commitment to promoting culture, human solidarity and, above all else, the conviction that contemporary art can be a universal language capable of building bridges between different cultures and nations, is now leading Galleria Continua to embark on new paths and to open a space in Cuba. Aguila de Oro in Havana will be devoted to art, to meeting and exchanging ideas, and to cultural projects designed to overcome every frontier.
