The event has become a label of quality: 170 international appraisers validate or sanction the works proposed. The "chosen ones" include the Paolo Antonacci Antichità gallery in Rome and two people who joined forces for the occasion, Christophe Quénétain and Marella Rossi of the Paris gallery Aveline, who wanted to breathe new life into the image of furniture and objets d’art by asking decorator Pierre Yovanovitch to design their stand. The Chevalier Gallery is back after
