Our art collection goes digital!
Monday 13 November 2023
UniCredit proudly launches its new art platform with the aim of making one of Europe’s largest corporate collections accessible to a wider audience. The website will feature over 200 artworks and more than 100 artists from our collections in Austria, Germany, and Italy, reflecting our Group's shared European identity and heritage.
The new UniCredit Art Collection website, launched on 8 November during a dedicated event in Rome, features over 200 artworks and more than 100 artists from our collections in Austria, Germany, and Italy, including Giacomo Balla, Georg Baselitz, Piero Pizzi Cannella, Antonio Donghi, Dan Flavin, Jakob Gasteiger, Hans Hartung, Axel Huette, Cornelius Völker and Walter Pichler.
This new platform leverages digital innovation to share an initial selection of our extensive collection, making it accessible to a wider audience. Through partnerships and long-term loans, our artworks have long been exhibited in offices, branches, and important museums, as well as via temporary loans for national and international exhibitions. Today, the public can enjoy our heritage through this online gallery, exploring and enjoying several key masterpieces.
"The UniCredit Art Collection, one of the largest corporate collections in Europe, has an important symbolic value. It reflects our Group's shared European identity and heritage. At UniCredit, we will continue to spread artistic knowledge and experience as a factor for cultural and social growth and development, enhancing the value of our UniCredit Art Collection through a wider public access"
