Carolina Conforti was born in Napoli, one of the most romantic cities of the Italian “Magna Graecia” heritage. Her childhood memories are embedded by the dazzling baroque explosive colors of the Mediterranean Sea, whilst her mind is filtered by the sleepy yet eruptive monumental cities of Paestum and Pompei. Her life was a roller coaster of wonderful Art wanderings in the most charming European cities, which fed her restless passion for Art whilst touching multiple Art facades.
Her first academic steps were taken throughout the breathtaking walls of the Louvres, where she fell in love with “Dessin Ancien”. Her Art career led her to the World’s most challenging auction houses Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Lately, she has been going through her own “Renaissance rebirth” fascinated by the more digital conversion Art is embracing. It is Carolina’s belief that in this surreal moment, what our culture and Arts are facing is best illustrated by Giuseppe Tomasi’s words in “Il Gattopardo”, “for things to remain the same, everything has to change”.
Through words, whispered in the sweetest way in one’s ear or howled to one’s heart, Carolina Conforti, a Zug based art historian, art critic, art collector and writer, has been pursuing her philanthropic meaning of Art.
