Art is a science: needs a specialist
My method, experts, clients and responsibilities are specific and strictly confidential
Auction houses, private collectors, galleries, companies and museums have different needs
I have had this passion since childhood and
I am an art historian and expert dealing with Fine and Decorative Arts since 1995
Knowledge on Decorative Art fits the most varied environments
WHO I AM
Up to 1999 the experiences where I have learnt the most have been working with Electa Art books and cataloguing for Finarte Auction house. I assisted the most qualified experts and art historians in the Furniture, Objects of Art, XIX century painting, Rugs and Carpets departments; I was then in charge of all catalogues, external and media relations.
I have a quick tour in the movie industry as assistance to the costume designer Gabriella Pescucci: "A" The Scarlet Letter and Amata Immortale have been joyful experiences (allowing me to pursue my love for tailoring and embroidery).
From 2001 my activities have been focused on freelance counselling.
For Main art galleries as Mazzolemi Arte, Il Quadrifoglio, Moshe Tabibnia, Marco Riccomini, Rob Smeets, exhibiting in and out of Italy, I took care of publications, research and catalogue entries as well as fittings, receptions and public relations.
Museums as the Collezione Bertarelli and the Museo di Arti applicate in the Castello Sforzesco and Palazzo Reale (Milan), Museo Gianetti (Saronno), Museo Accorsi (Torino) asked me for exhibitions, publications and fund raising.
Main and small auction houses as Sotheby's, Christie's, Il Ponte, Pandolfini, Rubinacci, Wannenes, Von Morenberg, trusted me when I introduced private and institutional customers, managed start up, organized house sales and non-profit auctions.
Institutions such as the the Fondazione Mario Negri, the Università Bocconi, the Touring club, the Italian Stock Exchange, Arner bank, Io broker, Lega Italiana Tumori asked me to valorise some of their Art.
Companies had assets to be valued: Gabrius spa, Michele Solbiati sasil, Schmid spa.
Families and collectors had personal and inheritance needs, this has been the majority of my counselling work.

I highly recommend Lorenza
From 1999 to 2003 we've been partners at Cappucciosedici, the Art Advising office we set up toghether with other art historians: here she took care of catalogue entries, public relations, relation with media and trading for private collectors.
She brought new clients and worked with the others for common projects.
In 2014 we worked again together to assist a private collector willing to sale important ceramic items.
She is very careful in her assistance both in practical and procedural aspects. she always pursues the best results for her clients. She is efficient and heedful.
owner at Subert
Lorenza has been my student, I worked with her and she is a good friend too
She worked for my family gallery as broker: she had a standing of balance and professionalism.
She is competent in assisting her client and willingly to get the best for him and takes commercial operations and her duties to completion with commitment.
President Amici della Collezione delle Stampe Achille Bertarelli onlus
I do recommend Lorenza.
From 2001 to 2006 she supervised the activities at Bertarelli onlus: relations with members, organization of exhibitions, events and the links with the Museum activities.
She also catalogued (2006/7) my family private collection either in Milan and in other Estates: her precision and extremely professional attitude made the family inheritance so much easier.
Lorenza is trustworthy, prepared, committed and attentive.
former Cfo Borsa Italiana
President at Schmid spa
I fully recommend Lorenza.
She accomplishes for Borsa Italiana an amazing task of studying and researching in archives, editing of panels and setting the exhibition on the original setting of the Italian Stock exchange Palace: so good was her work that it is still on the spot.
For Schmid spa she made a new web site and invented an auction about particular tissues: never done before! She made inventory, cure images and exhibition as well as post-auction administrative issues.
