The path on the recognition of authenticity in art and antiques is the flagship of MAS , one of a kind and strongly desired by its founder, the physical Gottfried Matthaes . In 1990 he purchased these exhibition spaces in the historic center of Milan which, to this day, remain the only example in the history of a museum dedicated to the important issue of ascertaining authenticity in art.
Greek-Roman and Etruscan Collection
In 1932 the school was closed and part of the collections were inherited by his nephew Gottfried.
Being a physicist, the combination of physics, science and art was the constant of his life.
In 1949 he invented the first printed circuit board (CHIP) for Siemens Germany and shortly afterwards, with the Italian partner Egidio Cozzi, he opened the first factory in Milan to produce them in series.
African Art Collection
In 2008 the Scientific Laboratory opens a second office in Germany, in Nonnenhom, Lindau, specifically dedicated to Northern Europe and managed by Dr. Martin Matthaes.
