REGGIO EMILIA, Italy — The links between a precision-cut coat and abstract art might not be obvious, but Luigi Maramotti believes both project definite signs of the times.
He should know, given he’s the chief executive officer of the $1.4 billion Max Mara Group as well as an avid art collector, just like his late father and company founder, Achille Maramotti. Well versed in everything from politics to art, history to finance, Maramotti believes contemporary artists depict the desires and fears of our times, often predicting what’s around the corner.
