the collection

a collecting project by Giancarlo e Danna Olgiati

“We put together our collection with the fundamental aim of documenting the avant-gardes of our time, but with constant reference to the historical avant-gardes, in order to seek their roots. […] We wanted to focus on the greatness of Italian art and integrate it with that of the rest of the world, in order to promote it and make it more widely known.”

a schaulager open to the public

The Collezione Giancarlo e Danna Olgiati forms part of the Museum Circuit of the Art Museum of Italian Switzerland (MASI, Lugano).

The collectors believe that the City of Lugano, with the new MASI, resulting from the union of the two local museums, could become the natural successor of the entire collection. In tune with a tradition that is deep-rooted in Switzerland, the project builds a solid and constructive relationship between public institutions and private collectors.

The temporary exhibition space it's seat is next to the LAC - Lugano Arte e Cultura - cultural centre.
