The Lucca Madonna by Jan Van Dyck in the Städel Museum in Frankfurt
Lucca, a quiet town known as the secret gem of Tuscany. A town with a tradition of sturdy independence rather than flamboyance. When I was a young girl back in Italy, I often visited Lucca with my family. As time passed, Lucca became one of the cities that inspired me the most outside of Rome in my pursuit to become an Art Historian. Often referred to as "the city of churches" Lucca has 70 churches and chapels filled with the most magnificent examples of art dating back to the Middle Ages. Lucca also represents ingenuity, warmth and trust in its people, and strength in cultural advancement.
Our mission: To provide ethical and honest approaches to appraisal, valuation and collection management and to treat our clients with the same warmth and trust that stems from centuries of tradition of good, fair people wanting to help.
Let our team assist you, guide you and give you the honest answers without the flamboyance, but with courtesy, intelligence, sophistication and years of education and expertise.
