Rene di Rosa is smitten by art. He is unusual because his goal is neither about interior decorating nor increasing social status, but about the pure joy of discovery. Rene has the world’s largest and most notable collection of northern California contemporary art; at times colorful, figurative, humorous, rebellious, political, and radical.
Smitten is not only about a man and his vast and extraordinary collection, it also offers a delightful commentary on the “art” of aging successfully.
