Who we are

SpeakART is the innovation that makes the information on the artworks safe and reliable

The company

SpeakART was created to meet the needs of the artworld, with a cross offer for all the players in the sector

It was founded in 2017 because of the need to accurately reorganise and preserve all the information and the data that orbit around every artwork and from the will to offer a safe instrument for the recognition of damages, natural decay and forgeries that can affect an artwork.

This thrust arises from the founder personal experience: she grew up in a family of collectors, who since her childhood have introduced her to an environment full of artists, museums and auction houses.

In adulthood and thanks to previous experiences, she faced problems common to the whole world of art: this prompted her to analyze them and to search for the most suitable solution to these needs.

Years of research and tests have led to the market launch of a complete andalways updated tool, to respond to the needs of its users and to the evolution of the market.
The daily effort is always bound to maintain its innovative features, offering services useful for the sector.

The idea of the artwork digital fingerprint makes both the product and the business vision unique: digitization makes any information available anytime and anywhere, but it also makes every artwork inimitable and comparable with itself over time.

The corporate mission is and always be to create added value in conservation, protection and management of the cultural heritage, both public and private. 

Thanks to SpeakART, it will be possible to solve uncertainty and distrust problems, which always weaken the market and the insurance operations

Marignana Arte gallery was born in Venice in 2013 from a project by Emanuela Fadalti and Matilde Cadenti. The gallery’s program explores various expressions of contemporary artistic research, paying attention both to the proposals of the new generations and to the enhancement of artists already established in the international field. Marignana Arte is also engaged in international collaborations which also include the realization of projects with both private and public institutions.

Faraci Arte Gallery is managed by Cateno Mario Faraci who, after fifteen years of experience as an art collector, decides to open a new space in January 2019. He mainly deals with Veronese painting and sculpture and works representing Verona and Lake Garda between the end of the 19th century and the mid-20th century. Without distinction of author, he also deals with symbolist, futurist and pointillist artists.

In November 2020, SpeakART joined the AIS (Art Identification Standard) consortium, which aims to standardize information related to artworks  by sharing it among all operators in the sector.
Its aim is the development of an universal standard able to link a unique identifier (DID) to each artwork leveraging blockchain technology to anchor them through an unalterable distributed ledger.
