Lugano’s international vocation has always entailed, almost as a consequence, the presence of great art collections. Some of these have contributed to enriching the city’s heritage, such as the creation of the Brignoni Collection which lead to the Museo delle Culture. Others, for instance, have found their final destination outside Ticino or have been unfortunately dispersed, such as the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection. Irrespective of their fate, all collections have a profound meaning and value even if they have been objectively bound to the human aspect of those individuals who wanted, influenced, and created them. The collector is essential to the collection, not only because they created it but also because they ensure its authenticity, interpreting the spirit of the times.
