ASTI, Italy – Nova Ars, the Italian auction house that trades as E-Art Auctions, is planning an outstanding 20th Century Italian Design and Decorative Arts sale for July 11th. The auction will begin at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time / 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time, with Internet live bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com.

An interesting design collection of modern Italian art in its many forms includes ceramics, furniture, lamps, chandeliers and glass works. Virtually a ‘made in Italy’ sale, it presents many of the greatest names from the midcentury period — from Munari to Mangiarotti, from Maartinelli to Colombo. Warren Platner is a distinguished American designer of the postwar era whose work fits in nicely with the rest.

Nova Ars is a specialist auction house known for its sales of top-quality Italian contemporary art and modern design. Its gallery in Asti is also a destination for those who seek to learn and share knowledge about art, design and collecting. The firm also provides valuations of personal property and appraisals. They are known for their expert team and for the personal attention they give to all Nova Ars clients throughout the valuation, consignment and auction process.

For additional information on any item in the July 11 auction, contact Valeria Vallese by emailing e.art.auctions@gmail.com or calling 011 39 328 9667353.
