Barabino & Partners is the first Italian agency to set up shop in London.
It will help sell 28 flats in a former convent in Venice, after landing the brief from British estate agency Knight Frank and Italian construction company Sacaim.
Barabino’s London office will target potential buyers in the banking, law and private equity communities.
The Genovese corporate and financial firm opened a London base in May headed up by senior consultant Giovanni Sanfelice di Monteforte.
The agency will promote Italian listed companies in the UK and help multinationals looking to invest in Italy.
