"My founding of Pro arte was driven by a firm conviction — I did not want to collect art, I wanted to share it. I surrounded myself with a team of art and finance experts and visionary investors, and we embarked on this collective journey.
Together, we take pleasure in discovering works of unparalleled quality, while reveling in the perpetual growth of their value."
