Achille Maramotti—Max Mara founder and art collector—first conceived of creating a public collection of contemporary art since the 1970s. He planned to make an exemplary institution, open to connoisseurs and other interested individuals, in the service of an aesthetic and intellectual appreciation of art. 

The Collection, open to the public since 2007, consists of several hundred works of art that date from 1945 to the present, of which something more than 200 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. The artists are represented by significant works from their early careers, and thus by examples of the ways in which their work first brought elements of true innovation into the research of contemporary art.

Most of the Collection’s 21st century works have not been included in the permanent exhibition, and are presented in theme-based shows for temporary exhibitions. The Collection is itself a “work in progress” and will continue in the future to document the novel paths that the further evolution of contemporary art continues to explore.
