Collezione Maramotti

Collezione Maramotti is a private contemporary art collection which opened to visitors in 2007 in the historical headquarters of Max Mara company.

The Collection consists of several hundred works of art that date from 1945 to the present, of which something more than two hundred are on permanent display as an in-depth presentation of a number of the central artistic tendencies, both Italian and international, of the second half of the 20th century. 
Ever since the opening of Collezione Maramotti, its permanent collection has been flanked by a systematic program of exhibitions and commissioned projects in the areas of the building which specifically function as venues for temporary events.


In particular, the upcoming exhibitions :
