Raffaele Jerusalmi, chief executive officer of Borsa Italiana, explained, “Borsa Italiana has always been committed to the enhancement of Italian excellence and sees support for our artistic heritage as an essential tool for economic development and the relaunch of the country. The launch of this new edition of the ’Revelations’ project with the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte in Naples marks another step forward in the effective collaboration between the public and private sectors for the development of modern patronage in favor of the enhancement of cultural heritage.”

Valentina Sidoti, head of the Finance for Finance Arts project, on the other hand, stressed, “Made in Italy companies are a unique mix of creativity and skills that are very much linked to our cultural and artistic tradition. We have created a platform that connects partners with different cultures, from museums to companies to institutions with the aim of promoting and facilitating the path toward financial support for the restoration of public works.”

For Sylvain Bellenger, director of the Capodimonte Museum and Real Bosco, said, “With Borsa Italiana opens, I hope, a new era for Capodimonte. I have always been convinced, in fact, that the future of our great museum institutions cannot remain the sole responsibility of the state but must be shared with all citizens, businesses and Italian entrepreneurial genius.”

Giovanni Lombardi, the museum’s advisor for fundraising and business relations, said, "The Capodimonte Museum is a source of pride for Naples and for the entire country and is an asset of humanity, and I am pleased that Borsa Italiana has chosen to hold the third edition of Rivelazioni here. This project has an important value for pmi, which can offer a great contribution to the enhancement of our artistic and cultural heritage, in a logic of sustainable investment for the company and the country. Revelations simplifies the relationship between company and museum, adding value to both parties, proving to be an optimal platform for pmi patronage activities."
