MARTINA FUSARI, CHRISTIE'S
SPECIALIST IN 19TH CENTURY EUROPEAN ART, CHRISTIE'S
If you were to give advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Pursue your dreams and never give up.
Be proactive, positive and flexible at all times but above all don't over-stress: there is always a solution to all problems.
Do you feel lucky to do what you do?
I feel immensely priviledged to be able to work at Christie's and therefore being immersed in such an array of beautiful works and objects every day.
My job enables me not only to be surrounded by beautiful works of art but also to get to meet incredible and passionate individuals who can inspire me every day.
A woman I admire and why?
There are so many that naming one is almost impossible! If I think about the art field I would say Palma Bucarelli, art historian and critic and first female director of a public museum in Italy (she was director of the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna in Rome from 1942 to 1975). Bucarelli played a pivotal role in safeguarding the museum works of art during the World War II and in promoting abstract and Avant-Garde art in Italy.
