Open Care - Servizi per l'Arte operates in the following sectors:


Art Consulting

It works within the ambit of the management and valorisation of collections thanks to a team of experts. It provides valuations and assistance in sales transactions, offers expertise and follows authentication processes. It designs and manages projects for the cultural and artistic valorisation of business collections and communication through art events. It collaborates with the most accredited operators in the system and has provided IAS valuations for all the main Italian banking groups. Its valuations are recognised as “accepted values” by the most important international insurance companies.


Conservation and Restoration

The Department includes five laboratories specialised in ordinary and extraordinary maintenance, in the restoration of paintings, frescos, antique, modern and contemporary works of art, wood decorations, tapestries, antique fabrics and carpets and a laboratory of antique scientific instruments supported by a diagnostic laboratory. It also intervenes on protected works in collaboration with the  Supervisory Bodies charged with their safeguard. The method follows an established procedure which begins with scientific investigations, followed by the preparation of a plan and concludes with the preparation of a report that describes the interventions performed, supported by photographic documentation, and suggestions for the conservation of the works

Equipped with internal parking and viewing rooms, the vaults have specific deposits for the various types of assets.
