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 :   

  • Instructions: The Whale by American painter Anna Conway. On view at the Collection from June 15 to September 15, 2024. 
    This new, intimate exhibition stands as an emblematic point in the advancement of Conway's pictorial research, while inaugurating a series of works (Instructions, “instructions”) that explore the idea of animals and their trainers against the backdrop of a green screen.
  • QUEM GENUIT ADORAVIT by Manuele Cerutti, through July 28, 2024.
    Manuele Cerutti, a painter from Turin, presents at the Pattern Room of the Maramotti Collection QUEM GENUIT ADORAVIT, a new body of paintings and works on paper specifically developed in an original design dimension.
  • Disintegrata di Silvia Rosi through July 28, 2024. 
    Specifically conceived for the Collection, the exhibition includes twenty new photographic works, some moving images and a core of archival photographs collected by the artist in Italy-and mainly in Emilia-Romagna-between 2023 and 2024.
    Assisted by the work of Mistura Allison, Theophilus Imani, and Ifeoma Nneka Emelurumonye, Rosi traveled the territory to collect hundreds of ordinary photographs, family album shots that recount the everyday life of those who, having arrived from Africa before the year two thousand, portrayed themselves and their lives in different contexts.
