1.In your opinion, what is the role of a museum?

An art museum, I believe, should excite educate cherish and communicate.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

One of my favorite museums are the Uffizi Galleries in Florence. I love to walk through the galleries and inhale western art at it’s spectacular best in only ten paintings. From the two-dimension Russian icons, to the discovery of painting and the birth of three-dimensional painting with Giotto, to La Primavera and the Birth of Venus by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, ending with the beautiful flesh of Rubens, all in ten paintings.  

3.How important are social networks in your business? And which platform do you prefer and why.

Instagram, it reveals my secret life, my process my thoughts, it’s remarkable what it reveals.
