On Saturday, October 5, Deutsche Bank opens its doors in the occasion of the Open Day 2013, the traditional annual event held for the first time in the Bank's new venue in via Turati 25, Milan. During the day, more than 50 works will be on show. The pieces are part of the Deutsche Bank Collection, the most important corporate collection of contemporary art in the world. This initiative, which Deutsche Bank is hosting for the seventh year, is part of the event "Invito a Palazzo" (Invitation to the Palace) promoted by ABI for the banks in Italy to open their doors to the public.
This year visitors will be given the opportunity to visit for the first time the new Turati building, featuring a new permanent section of the collection, as well as a brand new technological sustainable equipment. Reopened in 2012, the palace, designed in the Sixties by architects Ermenegildo and Eugenio Soncini, was in fact subject to an intense renovation, which made it rewarded with the environmental certification "LEED Gold".
From 10.00 am to 7.00 pm experienced guides will illustrate the works of Italian and foreign artists taking the guests along corridors and meeting rooms. Artworks are displayed in close contact with customers and employees in line with the "Art works" philosophy, to feed talent and develop creativity in the workplace. The works of internationally renowned artists such as Mimmo Paladino and Luciano Schifano will be on show, as well as the timeless images by Luigi Ghirri, the "Ricardian Library" (2008) by Candida Hoefer, the series of photographs "The Encounter" (2011) by Adrian Paci, and the site-specific work by Vincenzo Castella, an unprecedented tribute to the city of Milan commissioned to the artist by Deutsche Bank.
We look forward to welcoming you on Saturday, October 5th in via Turati 25.
