“Vastari becomes very interesting when it comes to making new unexpected connections: having an archive that ranges across disciplines from Roman coins to medieval weapons and Chinese vases, on the one hand feels like Ali Baba’s den, on the other hand, stimulates creativity enabling curators to think of thematic exhibitions that cut across disciplines with new unexpected connections.”
- Alessandra Galasso, Museo 900, Milan

STORY

We believe that to share art, knowledge and culture is to keep it alive.

We are called Vastari in reference to Giorgio Vasari (1511 - 1574), considered by many as the first art historian. Vasari wrote about masters of Fine Art, Sculpture and Architecture in Italy. This book, full of anecdotes about Donatello, Leonardo, Giotto, Raphael and other Renaissance artists helped centuries of fans around the world fall in love with their work.

Because we believe in the importance of any connection, we have created a more vast database of object types - hence, Vastari. Or if you want to keep it simple, we're Vasari with a 't' for technology.'
