THE DECALOGUE

  1. INFORM
    To make known the rights and obligations of private professionals working with or collecting cultural goods.
  2. COUNTER-INFORM
    To bring to attention the trials suffered by dealers or collectors of antiquities and their procedural outcomes.
  3. MAKE THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE PRIVATE SECTOR PUBLIC
    Many, even among those who work in the Administration of Cultural Heritage, do not know, or do not recognize, the positive contribution made by private collectors of antiquities.
  4. RESPECT THE DUTIES
    To strengthen the culture of full compliance with the law by all: collectors, public and private operators in the sector.
  5. RESPECT THE RIGHTS
    To strengthen adherence to the law also with regard to collectors, preserving their rights and dignity.
  6. RESPECT THE HISTORY
    To make known the historical importance of Italian collecting, a private passion cultivated for centuries, which has led to the formation of public collections and Italian museums.
  7. AGAINST PRIVATE AND PUBLIC MISCONDUCT
    To fight against the private commercial abuse of those who sell antiques or cultural goods without title and to denounce, at the same time, the abuses suffered by private individuals from those who supervise or administer cultural goods.
  8. ADAPT OR REFORM THE CONTRADICTIONS OF THE ITALIAN LEGISLATION
    To take action to ensure that special internal legislation does not penalise regular traders or Italian collectors in a way that discriminates against them more than in other countries. Ensure uniform criteria that can be adopted by the superintendence in relation to requests for a Certificate of Free Movement (Attestazione di libera circolazione, ALC) to eliminate the multiple and repeated contradictions that exist in the assessments of export requests and to curb the excess of discretion of the evaluator.
  9. PROTECTION OF AN IRREVOCABLE PRINCIPLE
    To always fight with the strength of reason, history, law and truth, so that the legitimate private possession of antiquities may be recognized - as it has been under the various successive special laws - and, therefore, for the coexistence of public and private ownership of cultural goods.
  10. TO GENERATE A NEW CULTURE
    Despite very old prejudices of ideological and anti-historical nature, it is important to work towards a collaborative, positive and structured climate between the private and public sectors in order to further promote culture and protect our national heritage.
FROM THE BLOG
My staff and I regularly update this section with articles and analytical insights. Archaeology,
palaeontology, numismatics, but also palaeoanthropology, archiving, ancient documents and the history of collecting:

are the subjects that we cover. Always from a legal point of view, of course.
