Philippe Braverio

Renowned critic, journalist, university professor: Philippe Braverio is a leading figure in the art world.

Being a refined esthete, Braverio is viscerally fond of all that is beautiful: the lithe muscles of Michelangelo’s David, or the snow-white limbs of Botticelli’s Venus can cause him actual fits of bliss, that shock him way beyond the Stendhal Syndrome. It is not uncommon, here at Antiche Dimore Fiorentine, to surprise him staring at a picture in devotion, or brushing against the wooden furniture’s stripes in ecstasy.

It may seem a peculiar behavior, but lovers’ oddities must be forgiven. And art is Philippe Braverio’s first love!
