Nanda Vigo: Remo Brindisi's museum-home in Spina
This represents a unique event in Italy: a great, heterogeneous collection installed in a "dwelling museum" and assembled in 25 years by a contemporary artist — Remo Brindisi — who commissioned Nanda Vigo the building. The house-museum has been then bequeathed to the Italian Government.
Remo Brindisi — who dared the great adventure, unusual for an artist, to become a collector — has put up a collection of more than 1800 works of art, representative of his taste, his choices and of his passions, proper to a contemporary artist.
The survey of contemporary art comprises painting, sculpture and graphic works. Here we can find pieces by an extensive range of artists, from Modigliani, Picasso and De Chirico to our days. Other than the previously mentioned works, the museum also includes works by Archipenko, Moore, Hermitage, Dalì, Arturo Artino Ceroli, Toyoluku, Mascherini, Calò, Franchina, Greco, Cascella, Milani, Trubbiani, Schiavocampo, Paradiso, Minguzzi, Pomodoro, Cavalieri, Lèger, Mirò, Pollock, Poliakoff, Magnelli, Castellani, Turcato, Bonalumi, Papola, Boccioni, Mafai, Wols, Braque, Oubuffet, Boriani, Anceschi, Appel, Sutherland, Music, Martin and others.
