COMPANY PROFILE – business history |
Arcadja was founded in Brescia in 2002, a young and dynamic company motivated by one great passion, the one for art.
The project, a merging of experiences in the fields of web design, information technology, marketing and communication, data filing and certifying, has led to the realisation of the portal www.arcadja.com: an absolutely innovative space online embracing a universe of services dedicated to art.
The synergy of a close-knit team has given strength to an intense and targeted work which has contributed to the creation of the network: at the beginning of 2005, Arcadja's portal was launched with the exclusive function of virtual store, where subscribed professionals could carry out online trading operations.
In 2006 the limits of access to the site were removed and the services of the portal started making use of new instruments, such as the auction calendar and the upcoming events, giving input to new relations and conventions with auction houses and national and international art institutions.
After more than four years of gathering, certifying and optimizing data – operations entirely run within the structure of Arcadja without any external support - in January 2007 the archive of auction results was updated, becoming as essential instrument for professionals and art lovers motivated by the wish to understand the art market.
The extraordinary progress made by Arcadja becomes concrete in the two-year period 2008-2009, when the portal is optimized by increasing the catalogue data and offering new services.
Today the website has a more international capacity, providing its data in eight languages: Italian, English, Russian, Portoguese, Arabic, German, French and Spanish.
