“Our choices as collectors are always done through mutual agreement. As Alain Fleischer wrote, we create the collection, but it is the collection that makes the couple we are.”
- Giovanni & Anna Rosa Cotroneo, Rome -
Giovanni and Anna Rosa Cotroneo began collecting in 1986, starting with a work by Pistoletto. Before focusing on contemporary art, they first collected 17th century art.

They created a collection composed by the great masters of photography, based on the couple’s personal taste and the friendships that bind them to individual artists.
