Summary:This volume, edited by Alberto Fiz, explores private collecting through a rich selection of over 150 works from eighteen of Italy?s most important contemporary art collections.0Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and videos show the figure of the collector not merely as a simple purchaser of works, but as the creator of a world, a project that grows in line with his or her personal sensitivity.0In opening their doors to these private collections, the third millennium?s patrons take on a leading role in today?s cultural landscape, offering a unique opportunity to promote otherwise unknown masterpieces.0Ranging from Piero Manzoni to Tomás Saraceno, from Marina Abramovi? to Maurizio Cattelan, this volume provides a collective picture, a?collection of collections?, linked with our modern day passions and tastes.00Exhibition: XNL Piacenza Contemporanea / Galleria d'Arte Moderna Ricci Oddi, Piacenza, Italy (01.02-24.05.2020).
