Presented in a series of small solo exhibitions, the projects offer an overview, albeit partial, of the sustained work conducted by the Collezione to support Italian and international artists in a pivotal moment of their artistic research, by inviting them to create a new body of works to be displayed and, subsequently, to enter the collection.

The new exhibition itinerary reflects an interest in the evolution of the pictorial language, an attention to new forms of expression and in questioning the status quo of the artwork, while striving to offer a vision through which future trends can be acknowledged.

The rehang – which is also a moment of reflection on the Collezione and its development – is accompanied by a temporary exhibition on the ground-floor, presenting documents, books and works from the Collezione’s archives and library, living places of knowledge and in-depth study. Through relevant examples, these materials highlight the vitality of the creative process of artworks and the connections between the various groups of elements that form the collection.
