Vera Canevazzi is an art consultant, curator and lecturer from Milan.
After studying art history at the University of Milan and the Roberto Longhi Foundation for the Study of Art History in Florence, she moved to New York, where she collaborated with the Chelsea Art Museum. Her passion for contemporary art became a profession through her collaboration with Lia Rumma and Mimmo Scognamiglio galleries and the Pecci Museum in Milan. Subsequently, he served as director of Cortesi Gallery (London, Lugano, Milan) from the opening of the first location in Lugano in 2012 until 2017. The gallery's international reach and its ongoing relationship with institutions, archives and artists allowed it to specialize in post-World War II art.
Since 2018 he has been working as an art consultant and independent art advisor for artists, collectors, galleries, museums, publishing houses, law firms, architectural firms and private companies.
Since 2020 he has been a technical consultant (CTU) of the Court of Milan for twentieth-century art. In the same year he published with FrancoAngeli Editore the book "Professione Art Consultant," a guide to navigate the world of art and, in particular, the world of art consulting.
At the SantaGiulia Academy of Fine Arts in Brescia, he teaches Art Economics and Market and Phenomenology of Contemporary Arts. He has lectured on Art Consulting at the Masters of Art Management of 24Ore Business School, RCS Academy, Catholic University of Milan, State University of Pavia, IULM University of Milan and NABA - New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan.
He has organized and curated several exhibitions in galleries and institutional venues, both in Italy and abroad, and has collaborated with several publishing houses, including 24Ore Cultura, Skira, De Agostini Scuola and FrancoAngeli.
