The Banca d’Italia began collecting art in 1930, methodically enlarging their collection over the past 80+ years.

With the goal of making it easier to view the highlights of their collection the Banca d’Italia decided to create a digital online archive rather than present its art collection in a traditional print book format that would have needed many volumes.

The online archive is an accessible website that has 20 virtual tours that viewer can take to view specific groupings in the collection, such as “Futurism.”

All text on the site are in Italian and English, and  also available in audio versions in English.
