Images of Italy: Deutsche Bank Collection

March 21 2017 ? Milano

Ten years after the inauguration of the Italian section, the bank has now published its new catalogue

Ten years after the inauguration of the Italian section of the Deutsche Bank Collection, Deutsche Bank's contemporary art collection, the bank has now published its new catalogue "Images of Italy" ("Immagini d'Italia"), which brings together the over 600 works of art on display at the bank's offices in Italy (Milan and Rome).

A unique example of patronage for culture, the Deutsche Bank Collection - created in the mid-Seventies to promote art and foster exchanges between different cultures - now includes over 60,000 works of art, making it one of the most important corporate contemporary art collections in the world, on display at the bank's 900 locations worldwide.

The Italian section was inaugurated in 2007, at Deutsche Bank's headquarters in the Bicocca area of Milan. Over the past decade, the collection in Italy has grown and expanded its borders: in 2012, new offices were opened on Via Turati, in Milan, home to over 100 works; in 2013 works by prominent Italian photographers dedicated to Rome were purchased for the offices located on Piazza Santi Apostoli in the capital. Today the three collections consist of more than 600 works, some of which come from Frankfurt, in addition to many recent purchases and some pieces specifically commissioned by the bank from Italian artists.

"Images of Italy" takes visitors on a trip across Italy through Deutsche Bank's offices and the works of art on display there, primarily works on paper and photographs, in which the most relevant contemporary artists coexist and interact with emerging young talent, an important source of innovation from which Deutsche Bank draws with an eye to the future. Thus, for example, the architectural images of Günther Förg are complemented by the industrial architecture of Gabriele Basilico, whereas Luca Vitone's Italy floating on the waves plays counterpoint to Ina Weber's metropolitan settings.
