About Us At the end of 2014, a group of new investors acquired the Finarte brand . The idea is to create a collector society for collectors . In July 2017, Finarte's expansion strategies take shape with the acquisition of Minerva Auctions , a historic Roman auction house based in the seventeenth-century Palazzo Odescalchi. The birth of the new Finarte Group confirms the desire to return to being a reference point for Italian collectors. The core business of the Finarte Group is the organization of public auctions of works of art and valuable assets. Our experts are at the service of sellers, buyers and investors and offer technical and financial advice for the purchase and sale of works of art, photography, design objects, jewelery, books and vintage cars.
