I did not know that Robert Zellinger was such a wealthy man. Impressive art collection! Too bad that the family has to sell it.

Another action for Robert Zellinger de Balkany, former husband of Princess Maria Gabriella of Savoy.

The auction comprises over 700 works of art from two of the celebrated businessman’s residences palazzo Lancellotti in Rome and château Balsan in Eze, on the French Riviera. The sale reflects Robert de Balkany’s discerning eye and vision as a collector and connoisseur.
