“My whole life is dedicated to learning and I love it. I was born to learn!”

Silvia Fini
Silvia Fini’s entire life has been dedicated to archaeology and art. Her fascination started when visiting archaeological digs with her father and led to Silvia opening her own antiques shop in the city centre of Bologna. To sell her wares, she attended international fairs and was an entrepreneur in selling antiquities online. Silvia’s experience as a professional appraiser for the court of Bologna, gave her a very broad knowledge of antiques. So much so, that she teaches a university course on jewellery history and writes for a broad range of publications and blogs.
Silvia Fini’s experience makes her the perfect expert for Catawiki. While the silver auction is her main focus, she assists with several other auctions as well. Silvia firmly believes that building trust is one of the most important aspects of being an expert. That’s why she works hard by appraising items the best she can, writing the most accurate descriptions and investing in customer relations. That way she ensures the best items for her auctions and helps to build Catawiki’s reputation as the most reputable online auction platform in Italy and the world.
