Collectors Association

Collective is an Italian association of art collectors that operates nationwide and internationally to promote contemporary art, create opportunities for dialogue between collectors, curators, and museum directors, and to encourage integration with other cultural environments.

Collective is for anyone who wants to join a national and international network to share a passion and support young artists through the Collective International Art Prize, held every two years, for the donation of a work of art by an artist under 35 years of age to Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea.

Collective aims to provide support to the collector in the various aspects of the development and management of a collection, offering services with attractive conditions thanks to agreements with selected partners, like, Opencare (Bastogi Group).

Collective looks to the future and, with the help of its members, aims to encourage the birth of a new generation of collectors, to support the Italian art system in its various expressions, with an eye toward peripheral realities and research.

Collective comes from the idea of the collector Andrea Fustinoni, Managing Director of Grand Hotel Miramare in Santa Margherita Ligure, Silvia Anna Barrilà and Maria Adelaide Marchesoni, journalists specializing in the art market and collecting, and Nicola Zanella, cultural manager.
