For UniCredit, collecting means creating a wealth that represents its identity and history through a development process shared with all the member banks of the Group.
Through the UniCredit & Art project, UniCredit participates to several events aimed at sharing and confronting, based on a peer dialogue with the main players in the Italian and international art system, in view of promoting and disseminating contemporary languages. The Group's collection, expanded through the project with a set of contemporary works, is interpreted as a "dynamic" asset and as a communication tool to convey UniCredit's own innovation values. Within the framework of the acquisitions, UniCredit is developing innovative formulas, brand new in the Italian corporate landscape, including partnerships with institutions - such as the MAMbo in Bologna and the Borghese Gallery in Rome - or production partnerships with Biennial exhibitions, such as the seventh edition of Manifesta, the European Biennial exhibition of contemporary art.
