Collezione Maramotti

Collezione Maramotti is a private contemporary art collection which opened to visitors in 2007 in the historical headquarters of Max Mara company.

The Collection consists of several hundred works of art that date from 1945 to the present, of which something more than two hundred are on permanent display as an in-depth presentation of a number of the central artistic tendencies, both Italian and international, of the second half of the 20th century. 
Ever since the opening of 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.


In particular, the upcoming exhibitions :   

The Unproductive by Giulia Andreani
29 October 2023 - 10 March 2024
For her first institutional solo exhibition in Italy, Giulia Andreani presents L'improduttiva (Unproductive), a project consisting of an organic corpus of new paintings, including some large formats, and watercolours conceived for the South Room of the Collezione Maramotti. Andreani's work originates from the elaboration of collective memories, from fragments of history in danger of being lost, which the artist recovers and transforms into articulate pictorial compositions, into visual collages constructed by correspondences.


The permanent installations are also worth a visit:

  • A permanently open window by Jason Dodge is a site-specific project for a disused industrial space converted into a business centre. The permanent installation can be visited on request on Saturdays and Sundays at the following times: April to September from 5 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.; October to March from 1 p.m. to 1.30 p.m. and from 2.30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
  • The fountain Mahallat el-Ghouta94, Block 8, District 4 at Alcide Cervi Park, part of the project The Fountains of Za'atari by Margherita Moscardini, presented by Collezione Maramotti in collaboration with the Municipality of Reggio Emilia in April 2019.
