Only days before the madness of Miami Beach art week, when dozens of fair venues and events orbit Art Basel, the Miami Beach edition, depleting some of our our agents of valuable resources for ongoing exhibitions and commercial operations, and I reflect on the momentous occasion for two of our members. Córdova Plaza celebrates 30 years of excellence with a gathering of clients, colleagues and friends at the glorious Castillo de Chapultepec. Also this year, Gander & White receives the prestigious Royal Warrant for fine art services provided to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the anniversary of their 85th year. Milestones like these are actually not unusual for any of our accomplished members. Find your local provider on the our members link of our website.
ZüST & BACHMEIER CHIASSO
Mr Giovanni Züst, entrepreneur and philanthropist, founded his own forwarding company, the Züst & Bachmeier, in 1911 in Chiasso. His relationship with art was instinctive, passionate, overwhelming: he used his Villa in Rancate as a private Museum and donated part of his collection of silver at the Historisches Museum of St. Gallen (1969), while the Etruscan and Greek art objects became the first nucleus of the Antikenmuseum in Basel (1961). On June 9, 1966, he donated his collection of Ticino and Lombard paintings, dated from the seventeenth century to the nineteenth century, to Canton Ticino starting the small museum keeping his name, Pinacoteca Giovanni Züst. The Pinacoteca promotes cultural activities, temporary exhibitions of prominent artists of Swiss and Ticinese tradition. In 1947 the Ambrosiana of Milan awarded him the degree honoris causa for his contribution to the reconstruction of the buildings damaged by the war. Since 2010 a new management has been driving the company through the challenges of an even more demanding market, without forgetting the teachings of our founder, Mr Giovanni Züst. We breathe art and we know how it works, since 1911. Zust & Bachmeier SA #WeAreICEFAT
