The purpose of G.E.M.A. is to offer a service, as complete as possible, to all those who have something to do with the world of Art, professional or not.
With Opera Omnia, G.E.M.A. places at disposal of the professionals (artists, art critics, researchers, antique dealers, collectors, universities, art schools, museums, auctions, editors, banks, insurances, etc.) a unique, complete, reliable and fast service.
Unique, because for the first time, for a certain artist, all data about their works are collected in a systematic way, either being part of collections and put up for auctions.
Complete, because the collected data base themselves appeal to an expressly selected and constantly updated archives-library
Reliable because the purpose of G.E.M.A. is to previously collect and then classify the works from official records, such as books, catalogues of exhibitions, catalogues of auctions, etc., without anything made up.
Fast because using the multimedia techniques it is able to obtain the requested data (the Opera Omnia of the artist) in very short time, and immediately for the ones already complete.
G.E.M.A., with its data bank, is particularly suitable for researchers and students, because they have the possibility to get straight away the corpus of the produced works of the examined artist, lightening their work.
It is congenial to editors, because they can have under control competition straight away. Because together with the publishing of a biography work by work, also volume and name of the editor are quoted. Because, by quoting book and page where the work is published, the reader is led towards that publication for closer examinations.
It is congenial to museums because, in addition to a considerable promotion, it shows the location of the works and it induces to go and see them from life. Besides, with the Opera Omnia the museum is in a position to check in which books the work is published and how.
It is congenial to salerooms because it is possible to verify when and how the work has been put up for auction and with what quotations, and to keep competition under control. With the Opera Omnia of the artist then they have at their disposal an extremely useful and practical instrument to verify the attribution of the examined work and, what is absolutely unique, to verify the quotations of the artist at the present time. Furthermore with the data bank they have an ideal vehicle for promotion and circulation of their name. In the biography the name of the interested saleroom is indeed always quoted, with date and lot number.
It is congenial to all Art lovers, and you can imagine how many they are in the world, because with the Opera Omnia of an artist they can have, all together and straight away, all elements of their production: image of the work, even if minimal and approximate, description, measures, support, where the work is available and, if up for auction, even quotations of valuation and attribution. Finally they have (absolutely unique and very useful aspect) the biography work by work that allows them to determine volume and corresponding page for a deeper reference and investigation.
Finally with G.E.M.A. the first, real, systematic, complete census of the artistic heritage has began, based on the use of multimedia techniques.
G.E.M.A. is a data bank at service of all those who love Art in the world, in the awareness to carry on something useful to everybody, professional and not, for a wider and wider, deeper and pleasant knowledge of this sector, in which Italy is first in the world.
And in the world G.E.M.A. spreads a product “Made in Italy”.
