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.
Collezione Maramotti reopens from 21 May 2020
Collezione Maramotti is pleased to announce that it will be reopening to the public on Thursday, 21 May 2020, while limiting admission to comply with social distancing regulations.The permanent collection can be visited by ten people at a time, as can the gallery housing the temporary exhibition by Svenja Deininger that is currently on view. Only visitors wearing face masks will be admitted.
The Maramotti Collection reopens to the public, 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.
