The Giacinto Cerone Archive offers a service of authenticity certification and of archiving.

The archiving and authentication of the artworks are subject to the positive opinion of a specifically established Scientific Committee, and require the scrutiny and validation by Dr. Elena Cavallo Cerone.

With its archiving and authentication activities, the Archive aims to document Giacinto Cerone’s artistic production in an exhaustive way, creating the largest and most complete collection of the Artist’s artworks.

Therefore, all owners or holders of Giacinto Cerone’s artworks are invited to contact the Archive and to support its research and study activities, also by means of donations and contributions, through which the Archive will be able to cope with the substantial management costs.
