Roberto Gagliardi is an Italian-born art dealer based in London. He has a gallery in London and has founded as well as curated a temporary exhibition in Chelsea Old Town Hall called London Art Biennale. His art collection is housed in the Museo d'Arte di Chianciano Terme in Chianciano Terme, in Tuscany, central Italy; which since 2009 has organised the Biennale di Chianciano in the town.
For many years, Gagliardi sold imported Italian furniture.
Gagliardi wished to found an art museum and, after considering other options, chose Chianciano Terme in Italy.
In 2016, Gagliardi bought 10 vacant shops in Chianciano Terme to be used for the Chianciano Expo.
In December 1992 an exhibition entitled "Children Versus Mafia" opened at the gallery, showing paintings by Italian schoolchildren inspired by the killing of two judges, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, who were investigating the Mafia and their bodyguards.
