Meet Manuela, our Senior Stamps Expert
Manuela Sorani's life is inextricably linked to stamps. Her father was a fervent collector who took her to all sorts of fairs, auctions and gatherings. His award-winning pre-Israeli stamp collection was named after her. Building on the foundations he laid, Manuela Sorani lovingly continues her father’s legacy. Meanwhile, she has run her own business for more than twenty years, advising stamp collectors on their collections. This brings her into contact with the largest collections and the most exclusive stamps. Manuela Sorani uses all her knowledge of stamps to make beautiful auctions.
She advises sellers about compiling interesting lots and ensures that descriptions and photos are as they should be. This way she appeals to enthusiastic philatelists who are still building their collection, as well as collectors who are still looking for that one specific stamp. Manuela Sorani sees her audience becoming increasingly diverse, with Italians who get to know Catawiki and international bidders who get to know the often fascinating Italian stamps. As a true aficionado, this growth gives her even more satisfaction from her work.
