In cooperation with the Italian Institute of Culture and the Archaeological Museum, Zagreb, we hosted an exhibition in the AMZ Gallery between November 7, 2018 and January 15, 2019, in the course of which one of Giotto’s greatest works of art was presented, the Scrovegni chapel in Padua, whose frescos were painted between 1303 and 1305.
We have sponsored the Modern Gallery in Zagreb with a permanent exhibition of the greatest works of Croatian artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st century. All of these works are representative masterpieces of landscape art, figurative and abstract art, as well as portraits and animal sculptures. We have also supported various cultural programmes and institutions, such as the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb or the CNT in Rijeka, the traditional ethnological event “Rapska fjera”, etc.
