Paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics from the 20th century will be featured in the sale. Futurism, an avant-garde art movement that originated in Italy in the early 20th century, is strongly represented in this section. Vittorio Corona, an important representative of this movement in Sicily will be a highlight of the 20th century section.

On 15th December old masters, including a piece by the Italian master Francesco da Tolentino, will come to the market. This piece is particularly important as da Tolentino's work who has never been sold at auction before, only two signed works by the artist are known to be in existence.

This piece Still life with peacock is a particularly important piece of Christian symbolism. The peacock as a symbol of resurrection, the cock signifies the denial of Christ by Peter and the quail represents the evangelist John.
