Collective is an association of art collectors all over Italy and abroad.
It includes both prestigious collections and more recent collections, offering a complete panorama of the variety and depth of the phenomenon in Italy.
Parma | Italia
Monica Rabaglia is a psychoanalyst, co-founder, and councilor of an association that deals with the treatment and study of personality disorders (PDlab). She started collecting contemporary art in 2006, focussing on female artists such as Roni Horn, Kiki Smith, Sophie Calle. Monica Rabaglia's profession is reflected in her research, which has always focussed on identity issues. Lately, she has turned to art dealing with contemporary political and socio-cultural topics. But besides the meaning, there is the encounter with the work of art, which is unpredictable and pre-rational, and represents an experience of self-knowledge, as well as of the object.

Santa Margherita Ligure | Italy
Andrea Fustinoni, an art collector since the 1990s, Managing Director of the Grand Hotel Miramare in Santa Margherita Ligure and co-founder of Collective, has a passion for video and photography. Buying art for him and his partner Fabio D'Amato is synonymous with curiosity - a curiosity that arises every time they notice a dissonance between the appearance of a work and its message.
Lucca | Italy
The collection of Vittorio and Nunzia Gaddi began in the first half of the 1990s. It includes around 350 works by mainy international contemporary artists. It is accessible by appointment and is hosted in a 1920s Art Nouveau mansion in the city of Lucca, and in two old farmhouses in the countryside. One of these houses was intended as a country chalet but was gradually overrun by art. The other one was renovated for the collection in 2012.
