The essential role of the artist’s archive in the art world and market

Organisations that promote conservation, management, protection, and enhancement of the creative and documentary heritage of an artist are becoming increasingly established. These activities have important cultural and material effects; they impact the completeness of the documents available on the work of each artist and help verify its authenticity.Archivi d’Artista e Lasciti: memorie culturali tra diritto e mercato, deals with this subject by offering a detailed and international analysis of the legal rules and market practices that govern the complex system protecting the works of artists.

Greetings from
Bartolomeo Pietromarchi Direttor MAXXI Arte
