Claudio Gabellone

Expert Slot & Vending Machines

It is fascinating to see what old slot and vending machines can do with relatively simple mechanisms.

With a Dutch mother and an Italian father, Claudio Gabellone carries the best of both cultures with him. This also applies to his passions: antiques and engineering. He got his predilection for antiques from his mother, who traded in antiques. He developed his love for engineering at a technical company, where he worked on IT projects. Instead of working on the robotic arms himself, he designed the switchboards that operated them. When Claudio Gabellone moved back to Italy, he soon applied this experience in the restoration of slot and vending machines. This started with a single jukebox but soon enough he travelled through Europe, collecting anything and everything with a coin slot.

With his experience and background, Claudio Gabellone is the perfect representative for Catawiki in Italy. His knowledge of the market and his many contacts result in a considerable number of interesting lots for his auctions. Lots which he, as a real technician, works on every week to make sure they work exactly as expected. Claudio Gabellone pays close attention to accessibility. His auctions host real masterpieces for the seasoned fanatic and some less exclusive objects for the starting collector. This way he hopes to enthuse the Italian public for the opportunities an international platform such as Catawiki is able to offer.
