Art Factor

The Collection

This collection pays tribute to the art of the second half of the twentieth century, and has also been an integral part of the history and growth of the BFF Group. It encompasses 250 artworks spanning the years from the immediate post-war period right through to the early 2000s. The project takes in a selection of works that describe the Italian path through Pop Art, as embodied by the output of Valerio Adami, Franco Angeli, Enrico Baj, Lucio Del Pezzo, Gianfranco Pardi, Mario Schifano and Emilio Tadini. From the mid-1960s onwards, these artists engaged with a longstanding iconographic tradition, re-casting and transcending the avant-gardes and stylistic techniques of the past, while making use of a rich variety of resources, often deployed for purposes of social and cultural activism.
