The UniCredit Art Collection is one of the largest corporate collections in Europe, aggregating the assets of individual banks that became part of the Group over time, includes tens of thousands of different objects, the results of aesthetic choices and a passion for art that has always characterized banks.
This passion unites Italy, Austria and Germany, whose individual assets form most of the Collection, which has gradually grown to include some countries in Central and Eastern Europe.
The UniCredit Art Collection reflects our Group's pan-European identity and is distinguished by its breadth and quality from ancient works to European masterpieces spanning the 15th to 19th centuries as well as including contemporary pieces, with a special focus on promoting young and emerging artists.

Furthermore, photographs are an important part of the portfolio, including more than 4,000 historical and contemporary images.
The Collection's artworks are exhibited in our offices and branches as well as in important museums, through long-term loans, their value enhanced via temporary loans for national and international exhibitions.
As it is our aim to continue to spread artistic knowledge and experience as a factor for cultural and social growth development, we have made the UniCredit Art Collection accessible to an ever-wider public with a selection of major artworks.
