Sanlorenzo, the shipyard run by Massimo Perotti, past president of Confindustria Nautica has reconfirmed its key role in the art world by becoming an “Institutional Patron”, the highest level of association given to members of the business world, of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice: the most important museum in Italy for European and American Twentieth-Century art.

Following the “global partnership” with Art Basel, the world’s leading modern and contemporary art fair, Sanlorenzo continues its path initiated a few years ago via partnerships established with key galleries and cultural institutions. While, at the same time, the company has also reaffirmed its commitment to the art world by promoting education focused on the concept of beauty: a value that lies at the heart of the company’s sophisticated and tailored approach. Indeed, every yacht made by Sanlorenzo stands out with its materials’ timeless elegance and its attention to the smallest of details, thus becoming a unique creation, just like a work of art.

The first exhibition of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection to take place with Sanlorenzo as its “Institutional Patron” will be “Migrating Objects: art from Africa, Oceania and the Americas in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection” which will be open to the public from 15th February to 14th June 2020 and will offer visitors the chance to experience works by artists belonging to cultures from across the globe that have been discovered by the American collector and patron of the arts during her travels throughout the 50s and 60s, works which will be juxtaposed to European pieces from the same collection.
