Finance for Fine Arts
Borsa Italiana, a staunch advocate of Italian excellence, launched the Finance For Fine Arts cultural project in 2014. The primary aim of this project was to create an efficient collaboration model between the public and private sectors to support Italian heritage through the Art Bonus. The project recognised that restoration alone is not enough; it should be accompanied by improved visibility for collective enjoyment.
In the initial phase, the London Stock Exchange Foundation funded the restoration and digitisation of Titian's "Conte Antonio di Porcia e Brugnera," housed in the Pinacoteca di Brera. This success led to the digitisation of over 100 artworks from the same collection.
Building on this achievement, Borsa Italiana, in partnership with the Italian Minister of Heritage and Cultural Activities and Tourism, Dario Franceschini, introduced the "Rivelazioni" initiative. This initiative aimed to promote cultural patronage among companies. Under the guidance of former Pinacoteca di Brera director Sandrina Bandera, selected artworks were adopted by Italian companies, who sponsored their restoration and digitisation.
Inspired by the success of these endeavours, Euronext Group is proud to announce the relaunch of our Art Exhibition Space in the Borsa Italiana Gallery (BIG). Situated within Palazzo Mezzanotte in Milan, our gallery aims to support Italian and European art by showcasing and sharing artistic expression. We are committed to promoting and appreciating these artworks as a testament to our dedication to the cultural enrichment of our community.
