On 27 May 2014, Aurélie Filippetti, Minister of Culture and Communication, appointed Romane Sarfati as Director General of the Cité de la céramique - Sèvres & Limoges.
The Cité de la céramique - Sèvres & Limoges is a public establishment created in 2010. It includes the Manufacture de Sèvres, famous for its precious porcelain production since the 18th century, as well as two national museums dedicated to ceramics, the National Ceramic Museum in Sèvres and the Adrien Dubouché Museum in Limoges.
Beyond the continuation of the successful actions carried out by David Caméo at the head of the institution, Romane Sarfati proposed for the establishment a project around three main orientations:
- develop the establishment’s site strategy to make the Cité de la Céramique in Sèvres a reference point for Greater Paris in terms of cultural offerings and welcoming a family audience;
- strengthen the institution’s branding strategy to confirm Sèvres as a major international brand of French creation, combining artistic creation and know-how of excellence;                                                                                                   
- to develop the research and networking of the establishment in order to regain a position as a European research centre on fire arts.
Romane Sarfati, a former student of the Institut d'études politiques de Paris and the Ecole supérieure de commerce de Paris (ESCP Europe), also holds a master’s degree in art history (Université Paris IV).
In line with her training, she alternates complementary experiences between companies and public cultural institutions in the fields of production, dissemination, administration and strategy.
From 1992 to 1995, she was the director of the Daniel Templon gallery. From 1996 to 2005, she directed cultural productions at a video game production company and then at the musée du quai Branly where she was responsible for the internet and audiovisual hub. In 2010, she created and directed a production agency and a cultural venue dedicated to Asian design.
She was also Director of Cabinet of the Deputy Mayor of Paris, in charge of heritage (2005-2006) and then Director of Culture at the Essonne General Council in 2006. Since June 2012, she has been advisor in charge of visual arts, architecture, fashion and design to the Minister of Culture and Communication.
