Investing in art

Five hundred years on from Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael, Italy continues to lead the world in art. Collectors from as far away as Shanghai and New York compete to acquire Old Masters and Arte Povera, as well as pieces from exciting contemporary artists. And with so many monuments to protect, the state offers tax incentives known as the Art Bonus to invest in art and culture.
