In occasion on the great exhibition dedicated to the Piedmontese Baroque, in 1963 he met Pietro Accorsi in Turin, and he collabored with him for 19 years, until the great antique dealer disappered.

From 1983 he is president for life of the Foundation, made by Accorsi's want, who wrote in his testament: "Thank you for your knowledge and for your taste, what you will do for Turin, will be something very special".
