Achille Maramotti first conceived of creating a public collection of contemporary art since the Seventies. He planned to create an institution open to interested individuals, in the service of an aesthetic and intellectual appreciation of art. Until 2000, portions of the collection's holdings were exhibited for extended periods of time in the corridors and shared spaces of the Max Mara manufacturing building in via Fratelli Cervi, with the intention of creating a rich, ongoing interchange between artistic creativity and industrial design. One therefore observes continuity in the decision to turn this building, once geared to the creation of fashion collections, into the permanent site of an art collection.
#westayathome with Collezione Maramotti
The Maramotti Collection is closed to the public right now, but still active online, sharing images, stories, and so much more about our artists and projects. Our Social pages are constantly being updated and lately we’ve been posting #paroledartista on our YouTube channel, brief readings where artists talk about their works and themselves. Stay tuned!
Temporary closure to the public
In compliance with the Decree of 8 March 2020 to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, the Maramotti Collection will be closed to the public until further notice. Visits to the permanent collection and to the temporary show by Svenja Deininger are therefore suspended.
2020 exhibitions schedule is being updated
The exhibitions scheduled at the Maramotti Collection this year remain unchanged, but the dates might change accordingly to the Coronavirus emergency.
