Relaunched at the Saatchi Gallery in May 2009, COLLECT has an enviable reputation as a premier, annual fair for contemporary craft. Through its presentation of work from the best international applied artists, COLLECT has become a prestigious event in the international cultural calendar gaining the respect and support of many private collectors, museum curators and galleries.

The Antonella Villanova space was conceived in 2007 within the well-established contemporary art venue; the Alessandro Bagnai Gallery, to provide a complementary element of research. The gallery presents works of art and ornamental objects created by famous visual artists and designers, as well as emerging young talents specialising in jewellery. In this white cube in the heart of Florence, there are historic pieces by masters such as Franco Albini, next to recent creations by the brilliant architect Johanna Grawunder; refined porcelain by Betty Woodman juxtaposed with a sculptural bracelet form by Enzo Cucchi as well as signed pieces by Kiki Smith within the rich section devoted to jewellery. Antonella Villanova creates an energetic dialogue between art and decorative arts by making the two inseparable, while respecting their individual characteristics.
