UniCredit's artworks - ongoing transformation



UniCredit Group's artistic heritage comprises a total of approximately 53,300 items (artworks and fine furnishings) mainly concentrated in Italy, Germany and Austria. It reflects our Group's 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. Furthermore, photographs are an important part of the portfolio, including more than 4,000 historical and contemporary images.


UniCredit has announced a new strategy to leverage and enhance its artistic heritage with a focus on increasing access to its collections to all, allowing the bank to further engage with its communities and support their development and wellbeing. This will include a dedicated digital initiative that will provide virtual access for the wider audience to the bank's art collection as well as educational programmes aimed at children in collaboration with the UniCredit Foundation. Furthermore, a touring collection will be curated to support the common priorities around young people and education.


This new strategy complements the bank's ongoing program of long-term loans to museums and institutions across Europe as well as specific partnerships and short-term loans for temporary exhibitions.



More information on the bank's new initiatives focused on art and culture will be announced in due course.

Partnerships in Italy


MAMbo - Museum of Modern Art



As part of the Art4Future initiative, UniCredit is the Main Partner of the Nuovo Forno del Pane project in Italy, an interdisciplinary art production center that transforms the spaces and purpose of the Sala delle Ciminiere of MAMbo - Museum of Modern Art in Bologna. It will no longer be just an exhibition area but also act as an incubator for creativity. Thanks to UniCredit, from July to December 2020, twelve young resident artists, selected through a public call, will have the opportunity to create their own studios inside the Museum for the production of their works, forming a unique creative community in the Italian museum scene.
