“This auction represents the synthesis of research, I do not like it being reduced to just one sale. – emphasizes Daniele Palazzoli, specialist in the department of modern and contemporary art – I prefer to think of it as the culmination of a road where the goal is certainly to sell works of art, but placed in the catalog in such a way that it understands the development of history. To me, you can only understand who we are if we know who we were. Let’s start with aeropainting and futurism, for example, with artists you never hear about such as. Gambiniwhich I find extraordinary: perhaps it is even the first time that one of his works (Propeller stop; estimated € 18,000 – € 22,000) is auctioned “
