Moving the art of the German impressionists

For most people, the word Impressionism probably conjures up names of famous French painters. Impressionism was actually a full-fledged European movement that yielded high quality works from all over.

In Germany, the prominent painters belonging to this movement included Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth and Max Slevogt. These artists were never really known by the general public as their work was seldom seen outside of Germany. The Italian Museo Archeologico in Valle d’Aosta and Gosselin are changing all that now.

From July 11 to November 29, the major works of the German Impressionists will be on display at this museum in Valle d’Aosta. The exposition will include graphic works as well as paintings and sculptures. For those who may be wondering where this great connection with Italy comes from: the German Impressionists often painted Italian landscapes.

Moving the art of the German Impressionist

Gosselin was responsible for coordinating the moving activities for the art, including transport.

Roberta Tanzi of Gosselin’s office in Rome: “The move went so smoothly; the art arrived in perfect condition at the agreed-upon time. There was still some stress behind the scenes though. The date the art was due to arrive changed at the last minute which meant we had to come up with creative solutions for the parking permits in the city center. That’s okay - we can handle complicated projects!”

Barbara Savelli, Branch Manager Gosselin Italy, expresses her gratitude for the professional collaboration of all parties involved: "It is always very motivating to see the success of a team effort."

FIDI FAIM re-certification huge success

Three more Gosselin offices have recently re-obtained their FIDI certification. FIDI is an organization whose membership is restricted to moving companies that have successfully completed a certification procedure. This results in a network of FIDI-certified agents. Seeing as how all three offices passed their recertification audit successfully, we asked branch managers Laurent (Switzerland), Barbara (Italy) and Viktor (Russia) about their experience with this remote process organized using Microsoft Teams.
