Ever since the opening of the 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. The Collection looks ahead toward the future of art and sees it to be thoroughly continuous and consistent with the attention the Collection has always shown to the evolution of new artistic languages, especially in the area of painting and the critical investigation into the nature of the work of art.
