In keeping with a long antiquities heritage, Jacopo Bellini and his wife April Bellini are continuing the tradition of the Bellini family name: superb quality Italian antiques. The name Bellini is synonymous in Florence, Milan and now San Diego with high quality, fine Italian furnishings. This family, rich in historical antiquity importance, begat in a 16th century villa along the Arno river in Florence within strides of the illustrious Ponte Vecchio, which is still home to the Bellini Gallery. It is Jacopo’s ancestor, Luigi Bellini Sr., who created the world famous international antiques fair, Biennale International Fair of Antiquariato. And it is with this tradition and ancestry that Bellini’s Antique Italia was created.
