Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo
Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is the founder and President of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. After graduating in Economy and Business at Turin university, she approached the world of contemporary art as a collector, in the early 1990s.
She turned her passion for art into an organized activity in 1995, when she created Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. In 1997 the first building of the Foundation was opened in Guarene d’Alba (Turin), into the rooms of Palazzo Re Rebaudengo, an XVII- century manor on the hills of Piedmont.
In 2002 the Foundation took its activity of developing and promoting contemporary art a step further, with the opening of a new exhibition venue in Turin, which is now an internationally acknowledged center for research, experimentation, and exchange between artists, critics, curators from all over the world.
Since 2017 she is the president of Fundacion Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Madrid.
