"TRIBUTE TO ROBERTO CIACCIO: BEYOND THE IMAGE – Time Memory Traces"

Off

THE VIP LOUNGE

WopArt revolutionizes the concept of VIP area as a place reserved for an exclusive clientele; it becomes an "experiential" area for an attentive and aware public. The high-level food service and the direct relationship with offers of WopArt / Event make this Area an opportunity of meetings and relationships between Publishing, Partners and Sponsors. In a strictly reserved area, WopArt launches the new ART ADVISORY service; independent and completely free, it will be entrusted to the private banking specialists. The proposal is intended to give personal advice to those who already collect but especially to those who, fascinated by the art, are not able to orient themselves at the exhibition or want a tailor-made advice on the various aspects of collecting: economic, legal, fiscal and insurance.
