If you want to sell a work of art, understand how much your collection is worth or the potential market value of a work of art it is of paramount importance to stay one step ahead. In other words, you must make sure that every step taken reflects the professionalism and knowledge of the art dealer.
In Italy, we do not have an art experts register (for art authentication) as such, however this does not necessarily mean that all certifications have the same value. So, in order to be valid, a certification has to be awarded by an acknowledged and professional expert otherwise the result achieved might not correspond to the costs covered.
Moreover, the art market has recently tended to show interest only in works of art of outstanding quality and undeniable validity. So it is absolutely essential to invest in a body, company or eminent and efficient art dealer that can certify and guarantee the authenticity of a work of art.
