This volume, edited by Alberto Fiz, explores private collecting through a rich selection of over 150 works from eighteen of Italy’s most important contemporary art collections.
Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and videos show the figure of the collector not merely as a simple purchaser of works, but as the creator of a world, a project that grows in line with his or her personal sensitivity.
In opening their doors to these private collections, the third millennium’s patrons take on a leading role in today’s cultural landscape, offering a unique opportunity to promote otherwise unknown masterpieces.
Ranging from Piero Manzoni to Tomás Saraceno, from Marina Abramović to Maurizio Cattelan, this volume provides a collective picture, a ‘collection of collections’, linked with our modern day passions and tastes.
