Brunetto Giovanni Brunetti

Dr. Brunetto is an Italian chemist professor of inorganic chemistry at the University of Perugia, member of the Interuniversity Consortium for Materials Science and Technology (INSTM) and associated with the Institute of Molecular Sciences and Technologies (ISTM).From 2009 to 2014 he is coordinator of CHARISMA ( Cultural Heritage Advanced Research Infrastructures: Synergy for a Multidisciplinary Approach to Conservation, 2009-2014)) which consolidates and extends the access activities of Eu-ARTECH. With CHARISMA, access to Large Scale Facilities ( SOLEIL , Budapest Neutron Center and the accelerators AGLAE and ATOMKI) is opened, to the MOLAB mobile laboratory (with contributions from the SMAArt Center, CNR-ISTM, CNR-INO, CNRS ), and also, for the first time in a coherent and organized way, to the archives of European institutions for the study and conservation of cultural heritage, such as the Center for Research and Restoration of Museums of France; the British Museum; there National Gallery; the Institut Royal du Patrimoine Artistique; the Prado Museum and the Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed (RCE, Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands). Author of about 180 articles, he has carried out experimental activity, with the technique of crossed molecular beams, in the field of dynamics of elementary processes. Since 1998 he has also carried out research in the field of innovative methodologies for the study of materials of works of art. He was co-editor of a special issue of Accounts of Chemical Research entitled Advanced Techniques in Art Conservation and the volume of the Royal Society of Chemistry, entitled Science and Art: The Painted Surface .

Investing in art

The goal of our group and this startup is to become a great "Treasure Hunter", chasing lost works of art and making them extremely valuable.

ChaseArt was founded by a group of Brazilian entrepreneurs with business relationships in the United States and Europe and extensive experience in the financial market (in large institutions).

Besides them, professionals with deep knowledge in the arts market are involved.

Tokenization

Given that blockchain is an immutable and transparent technology, its features and other advantages are automatically applied to the tokens stored on the platform, thus eliminating a number of issues that plague the art industry.

Tokenization digitizes property in negotiable tokens, thereby improving the liquidity of works of art. This turns art into a profitable investment option.

Once the painting or sculpture is selected for tokenization, an accredited curator evaluates the work and defines its value. The buyer can purchase tokens from various works of art and create several portfolios or choose to sell or exchange the tokens.

In addition, breaking ownership of the artwork also means democratizing the art industry and opening the doors of that sector to a larger and younger investor network.
