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.

"Auction of Collection of Robert de Balkany from Two of his Houses
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. Highlights include the magnificent Duke of York silver-gilt centerpiece by Edward Farrell, depicting Hercules slaying the Hydra."

An article about that!

"The Italian national soccer team, as a tribute to the Royal House of Italy, wore blue shirts for the first time in January 1911, and the maglietta azzurra quickly become the symbol of the sport."
