ART COLLECTION

The VAF Foundation’s art collection, which, in accordance with its statutes, contains works by Italian artists exclusively, is captivating, both because of the high quality of the works, as well as their wide range. This results from an unsurpassed wide range of their styles as well as from the widespread appeals of the holdings. In addition to examples of the artistic desire to communicate in classical modernism, there are many examples of newer formalised ideas and media strategies. The basis of this passionate and committed initiative consists of an extensive high-quality collection of Italian art, the holdings of which cover the artistic period from the beginnings of modernism in Italy to today’s trends.

From Futurismo to Pittura Metafisica to Novecento and early abstraction, the collection contains important masterpieces in significant artistic movements since 1945.

The VAF Foundation’s collection is now unique, having more than two thousand individually inventoried items. This also includes major works from the early history of Italian modernism, which lasted from around 1900 to the 1940s and whose importance is reflected in a correspondingly large number of works.
