As a young man, I was seduced by Italian Art, its graceful finesse and the wonderful diversity it offered. Time passed and my knowledge in the subject grew. The study of Italian art eventually became more than a profession for me; it grew into an all-consuming passion and a life’s work.
Seventeen years later, I feel that the years have richly rewarded my efforts. My gallery in the Louvre Antiquities is a noble space showcasing the jewels of Italian furniture; jewels worthy of the finest palettes. After all, the creativity of Italian Art is limitless, bound only by the manifold forms it takes and the dazzling myriads of colors it has for inspiration.
In it we find distilled the essence of the vibrant country itself, the Italian sun resplendent in its glorious hues, from dawn to fiery dusk, saturating the design of the furniture and giving the impression that it glides through space.

Italian artists have traditionally given special attention to the ornamental arrangement, reflecting the image of nobility and high clergy of the times. Intricately composed, the structures they created have nevertheless retained an enduring simplicity, subtly interwoven with motifs which give away their complex and studied nature.
Compared to the art of the other Western European countries, the Italian genius remains unique, leaving behind a lasting mark on the history of Europe. The beautiful furniture featured on the site, ranging from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries is a living testimony to this enduring quality.
