Since 2001 – Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice (Italy)
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is the most important museum in Italy for European and American art of the 20th century created by the American heiress Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979). She assembled the core of her collection in London, Paris and New York between 1938 and 1947 with the advice of artists and critics. It is located in Peggy Guggenheim’s former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice.
The museum was inaugurated in 1980 and presents Peggy Guggenheim’s personal collection of 20th century art, masterpieces from the Hannelore B. e Rudolph B. Schulhof Collection, the Gianni Mattioli Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, as well as temporary exhibitions. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is owned and operated by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, which also operates the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and which is a partner of the Basque Regional Government for the programming of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
An Institutional Patron since 2001, BSI has had an opportunity to take an active part in contemporary dialogue between business and culture, helping support the museum’s growth and programming. Inside the museum, a display room designed to host temporary exhibitions has been dedicated to BSI.
