Riva Di Morcote


Contemporary art with an Italian twist

Riva di Morcote is a high profile arts dealer based in Berlin, Germany and Lugano, Switzerland. Established in 2013, the company handles works by artists such as Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke and Georg Baselitz. 

The name Riva di Morcote is derived from the town of Morcote situated on the lake of Lugano where the company was founded and from the famous Italian Riva yachts on its shores. The brand design draws its inspiration from the timeless elegance of classic Italian Vermouth labels and the deep blue colour of the lake. Combined with luxury stocks and a copper metallic foil the design elements create a premium and self-confident contemporary brand. A postcard from 1904 showing the town of Morcote serves as key visual and adds a vintage twist. The brand’s bold appearance is a confident statement in a usually understated marked and reflects the company's big ambitions.
