Florian Collection

Contemporary Art as a bridge between Venice, Florence and the world

Since 1988, date of the first Temporanea by Bruno Ceccobelli, the Florian Contemporary Art Collection has been growing in number, variety and importance.

Many of its works of art, were borrowed by renown museums around the world: “Liquid Crystals” by Fabrizio Plessi was exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in SoHo (New York) and in the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla, San Diego (California), while “A Goto for Venice” by Gaetano Pesce was on show at the Centre George Pompidou – Beaubourg in Paris and in the Museo della Triennale in Milan, just to name a few.
The Florian Contemporary Art Collection is also recorded in archives (prints, papers, photos, digital files) available to scholars, researchers and art graduate students.


Today, part of this private Collection is on show in a permanent exhibition in Florence, in a new and prestigious location where the exclusive coffeehouse and the fine dining meet the Contemporary Art.
